Poka-Yio is an artist and curator, based in Athen. Together with Stefanie Hessler and Kostis Stafylakis he curates the current 6th Athens Biennale ANTI. This edition of the Biennial, which Poka-Yio also co-founded in the year 2005, is dedicated to the (in) possibility of oppositional action and highlights the antagonism of resistant attitudes between marginality and the new mainstream. The Athens Biennale has been honored by the European Cultural Foundation for its open collective curatorial model. Poka-Yio’s artistic work is in the field of installation and action art. In 1999, he founded A-Station, the Athens Center for Contemporary Art, which he directed until 2014.
The lecture will be held in English language.
