Florent Frizet & Eric Stephany are delighted to invite you to:
A Conversation with Macklin Kowal on Tuesday 28, May 2019 at 7.30 pm at Καφενείο «H Μουριά»
In the spirit of La Bohème and the traditional Greek Kafeneio, we intend to organize a series of meetings gathering voices of the local art scene in Athens.
The conversation will be held in English.
Macklin Kowal is a curator and academic based in Athens.
A PhD candidate in Political Theory at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, his thesis analyzes contemporary far-right nationalisms of the Euro-Atlantic through the frame of discourse theory and through theories of performativity. He is additionally Founding Director of Sub Rosa Space, an independent platform for performance art located in central Athens.
His academic and curatorial work convene around the politics of testimony and cultures of public opinion, with particular focus on queer perspectives. Kowal has presented his research throughout Europe and North America, in both conventional and performative lecture form. Previously a dance artist, he held the danceWEB scholarship at ImPulsTanz International Dance Festival (Vienna) and was choreographer-in-residence at the Meridian Gallery (San Francisco).
Florent Frizet and Eric Stephany are two french artists currently living in Athens.
