Location: Ark in the patio at Benaki Museum.
A gesture against the climate of violence and the sweep operations in the center of Athens. The action is about the displaced urban nomads who live in the inhospitable city center. As a crowd which consists of subjectivities, entering the ark with their habits and their foods. They show us their faces, they tell their story, they talk about the primary foods they love and save inside the ark, which becomes a place of hospitality. The ark becomes their shelter.
The ways of interaction, of exchange of cultures and ideas, are the ones that need to be explored on the opposite side of spatial segregation and xenophobia.
