One Too Many
October 1, 2016 at 1:00 pm–2:00 pm
The Director of the Arts Administration program at Boston University, Lanfranco Aceti is proud to announce, Stefanos Tsivopoulos’, One Too Many. Special for ArtWeek, Professor Lanfranco Aceti will give a brief post-performance talk about the piece.
During this performance piece, each performer presents intermittently a series of photographic archives that show crowds of different political rallies from the era of Metapolitefsi in Greece. The Metapolitefsi (Greek: Μεταπολίτευση, translated as “polity/regime change”) was a period in modern Greek history after the fall of the military junta of 1967–74 that includes the transitional period from the fall of the dictatorship to the 1974 legislative elections and the democratic period immediately after these elections. Many consider that Metapolitefsi ended with the entry of Greece in the EU and the Euro in 2002.
Metapolitefsi is marked among other things by massive political rallies that have taken place exclusively on Syntagma Square, Athens. The trend marked a new era of democracy and the official end of the civil conflict but also solidified populism and corruption in the Greek political system.
This event is supported by the Museum of Contemporary Cuts.
