Eleni Kamma
Taking Place: Parrhesiastic Theater as a Model for Artistic Practice

Organized by Hannah Baader, Costanza Caraffa and Angelika Stepken

Please note that the lecture has been cancelled (to be rescheduled at a later date). We apologise for any inconvenience. 


Kamma’s research project examines how local and traditional European forms of parrhesiastic theatre relate to and provide new insights into critical artistic practices today and how tensions between the roles of individual and group, ‘I’ and ‘we,’ artist – audience – institution, may open up a parrhesiastic space for critical artistic practices. Parrhesiastic theatre takes place in public view and incites the spectators’ agency to speak their minds.
