Participants will be able to talk and think with people from various areas of contemporary society about the gesture emerging from the practice of a profession or activity: a fireman, a doctor, a cook, among others.

Anestis Azas & Prodromos Tsinikoris: CLEAN CITY (GR)

Sunday, August 21, 7.30 pm
The Old Power Station – Elektro Ljubljana

Clean City by Anestis Azas and Prodromos Tsinikoris, directors vacillating between Greece and Germany, challenges the rhetoric of »cleaning« that manifested at the pinnacle of the Greek crisis, blaming migrants for all the »dirt« in society. They address it in literal manner, seeking to answer who in fact cleans the city in concrete reality. The result is a documentary performance portraying five cleaning ladies that came to Greece from Albania, South Africa, the Philippines, Bulgaria and Moldova.
