A film never finishes when the end titles come up, as films leave behind them a world full of ideas and thoughts that we often have the need to share with other people. The result of such an exchange can surprise us, but can also change our perspectives on what we saw and how we interpreted it
Together with the Cinobo curating team, we invite our Members to a monthly talk that starts with a film presentation, goes beyond the limits of a "lecture" and expands into an exciting cinematic dialogue.
Building our “wine routes net” and experience, in April we meet again at Delta Restaurant, where we will have the opportunity to taste 5 representative varieties of the Greek vineyard soil, as well as emblematic wines.
Together with the distinguished sommeliers Aris Sklavenitis and Telemachos Papandreas, we will elaborate on the wine production areas, the characteristics of the varieties, the history of the wineries and of course the organoleptic characteristics of these specific wines, while we will learn “inside tips” of the wine tasting process.
Focusing on this month’s topic - “the Web” -, and in combination with the “digital citizens”, this meeting will present the potential dangers of the Internet and will provide the participants the appropriate directions in employing the necessary measures to identify and address these dangers
The concept of Family as a key element of the social Web: "Form and background", "the past and the present" and its dynamic interaction.
Like the spider web, the Family is a space for maneuvers, support and help adapted each time to the present social and geopolitical conditions.
Let's talk about it!
In this drawing and observation workshop, we draw inspiration from nature and Louise Bourgeois’s sculpture Maman, as well as from a series of drawings/prints of the same artist, which belong to the MoMA collection.
Employing natural materials (tree branches, stones), paper and colored pencils, we create shapes and forms, while capturing them on paper.
During our Easter meeting we draw inspiration from the monumental sculpture "Maman" (1999) of Louise Bourgeois, the iconic giant spider.
We will follow the signs of her cobweb, embroidering with red threads on an unexpected canvas made from plaster casts.
Open House Athens 2022 is coming to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.
