Faidra Vasileiadou will develop a dialogue with Kostis Velonis about the practices of a "cosmological archeology" in contemporary artistic production. The body of these artists understands the "origin" of the technique not as something that constitutes a simplification of the form, which at the moment becomes more interesting with the usage of contemporary know-how. The archaic origin of the technique is not treated in terms of the initiation of some questions that have historically been answered, but rather than the "hidden discovery" that is now revealed and constitutes a philosophical fiction about the genesis of the world.
