At the present moment, on our computer screen we are confronted with a flow of images and texts that sometimes inform us and sometimes misinform us, sometimes terrorize us and sometimes reassure us, sometimes promise to keep alive our illusion that nothing has change. And yet, reality has changed and is changing every day. We observe it, we feel it, we know it. MOMus, continuing the “Resilience Project”, is expanding its resilience and wants to communicate more with everyone who needs it. Share with us an image created by you that has artistic qualities, in response to the conditions of confinement that we experience. The aim is not simply to create social substitutes for our loneliness, nor simply to protect basic values and acquired rights, but, under this extreme and unexpected condition of everyday life that has affected all of us indiscriminately, to redefine values such as freedom, equality, justice, free time, solidarity and access to the basic goods of health, education and culture. Comment our new, hopefully temporary, way of life and of communication with your own photo, your painting, drawing or other visual medium that may be in the form of image, animation, sound, text or video. Give your own tone and let's make the digital album of these days all together.

Το Πάσχα που ποτέ δεν υπήρξε

Κάθε χρόνο όλη η οικογένεια μας περιμένει το Πάσχα. Είναι Άνοιξη καιρού βλέπεις και επειδή το σπίτι μας είναι στην εξοχή στον Καρτερό, συγγενείς και φίλοι περιμένουν να ανταμώσουμε. Οι μεν γονείς μου έρχονται από Αθήνα ενώ οι γονείς της γυναίκας μου κατοικούν κοντά μας στο Ηράκλειο. Επίσης λόγω της προηγούμενης απουσίας μου στο εξωτερικό η οικογένεια μου μου ετοίμαζε μια διαφορετική γιορτή. Αλλά φέτος, λόγω του COVID-19 και της υποχρεωτικής διαμονής μας στο σπίτι, κανένα από αυτά δεν συνέβη. Ο παππούς και η γιαγιά δεν ήρθαν, τα σχολεία έκλεισαν νωρίς, τα παιδιά έμειναν μακριά από τους φίλους τους και τους φίλους τους, ενώ το ίδιο συνέβη και σε εμάς. Το μόνο που μένει για εμάς είναι το Πάσχα, το οποίο δεν ήταν ποτέ στη μνήμη μας. Με την εικόνα αυτή προσπαθώ να σας δείξω τα συναισθήματα που βιώσαμε την περίοδο της υποχρεωτικής μας παραμονής στο σπίτι.

  • Second Language Title: The Easter that never existed.
  • Second Language Description: Every year our whole family is waiting for Easter. It's spring already and because our house is in the countryside of Heraklion of Crete (Karteros), relatives and friends are waiting to meet us and to celebrate together. This fact make us very happy! My parents are coming from Athens while my wife's parents live near us in Heraklion. Also due to my previous absence abroad my family was preparing a different celebration for me. But this year, due to COVID-19 and our mandatory stay at home, none of this happened. Grandpa and grandma didn't come either, the schools closed early, the children stayed away from their friends while the same happened to us. The only thing left for us is Easter, which has never been existed in our memory. With this picture I try to show you the emotions and feelings we experienced during our period of mandatory stay at home.
