Microgeographies is a work in progress on the transformations of specific socio-geographic environments. It focuses the action of local communities, as well as on some small-scale, minimal actions by social and artistic groups which assert a more poetic and political aspect of everyday life and function as a way of personalising resistance to the globalscape, to the further spread of areas abandoned to misuse, to the dominance of property speculation and the strategies of “refinement”: a small gesture, a trace, an in situ discussion or quick chat, the repetition of an everyday action (referring to work or a walk).

This closer –“inner”– look through artistic, architectural and social practices contains a wish: to experience rather than to consume, to unite rather than to divide, to simplify rather than to analyze. What we feel is what we get every time from an environment.

The work of the participating artists and architects forms the body of this question. The answer will be given by us all, in situ, and it is what we will experience. What, in our turn, we will reciprocate towards the environment, in a psychodynamic relationship with it.

Microgeographies II are presented concurrently at Keratea, at Artemida Agrotera, at the CAMP, whereas actions and discussions will take place at Kesariani and Omonoia.
