Bilingual edition accompanying Dimitris Tsoumplekas' project Amazonios - We Are Sailing with a Corpse in the Cargo, that took place in the former house and studio of artists Nikos Kessanlis and Chryssa Romanos in Polydroso, a neighbourhood in the northern suburbs of Athens, as part of the exhibition program ΕΜΣΤ Extra Muros, from May 5th to July 7th, 2022.

Amazonios was a trip down memory lane and an introduction to some of the unseen views of the city; it was the dialogue between an important contemporary artist and his prominent ancestors, a multi-dimensional, holistic artistic project eight years in the making, which combined the decaying remnants of Kessanlis’, the surrounding overgrown landscape, the artist’s own photographs and videos, and site-specific interventions.

Informative texts, historical documents and colour reproductions of the works exhibited are included.

Bringing together works from the past 20 years, this book introduces readers to multidisciplinary Belgian artist Maarten Vanden Eynde Belgian artist Maarten Vanden Eynde (b. 1977) has established a research-based practice, which spans diverse social, economic, environmental, and anthropological perspectives. His work covers some of the most important subjects of our time from extractivism, ecology, and colonialism to the after-effects of colonialism. The book is built up as an alternative encyclopedia of the history of human kind, investigating our influence on planet Earth. It proposes an industrial and post-industrial archaeology of the future, mapping out a speculative "future-fiction" of our evolutionary traces, and offers a survey of Vanden Eynde's work from the past two decades.

Family and cultural conditioning play a crucial role in the work of the German Turkish artist Viron Erol Vert. His expansive installations and sculptures explore religious systems, cultural identities, and linguistic experiences. Everyday objects and textiles are recurring media in Vert's works, which also examines sexuality, gender, and heritage. The publication Family Matters is the first to document a cross section of Vert's work. It communicates his unfaltering perspective of cultural hegemony that results from identity politics.

Days In Between is Marianna Christofides’ decade-long project of multi-layered encounters with the Balkans, one of Europe’s most historically and geopolitically contested "fracture zones". Initially realized as a 16mm essay film, the project has continued to evolve in various modes: as multi-channel analogue film projection, site-specific audio installation, serigraphy prints, light sculpture, geologic-photographic assemblage, text and 16mm film study. This book draws on Christofides’ recent solo exhibition at MNAC, Bucharest and gives, for the first time, a profound insight into her diverse aesthetic work and unique artistic practice. It assembles nine critical voices from the arts and academic world. Thinking with new materialism, Deleuzian film theory, and philosophical studies on time and space, the contributors highlight the multiple enfolded ways in which the artist’s work opens up to conversations around landscape and space in postcolonial contexts, essayistic film practice and forms of critical-emancipatory knowledge production in the arts.
