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.

In a galaxy not far away from here, philoxenia has a different meaning than the one we used to know.. You are welcome to Greece, land of hospitality! Have you heard about greek hospitality? Not the one you may have read about in your books but the one that happens here, today, in a galaxy not far away... For those who are not aware about the situation I'll give you some key words: refugees, camps, EU, trafficking, poverty, war, misery Welcome to the 21st century...in a galaxy not far away.... "Did you wash your hands?" Pencil, spray paint on paper 60*84cm Nefeli Kyriacou 2020

  • Second Language Title: Εσείς πλύνατε τα χέρια σας;
  • Second Language Description: Σ’ ένα Γαλαξία όχι πολύ μακριά από εδώ, η φιλοξενία έχει διαφορετικό νόημα από αυτό που έχουμε συνηθίσει. Έχετε ακούσει ποτέ για την ελληνική φιλοξενία; Όχι γι’ αυτή που έχετε διαβάσει στα σχολικά βιβλία αλλά γι αυτή που προσφέρεται σήμερα απλόχερα σε ανθρώπους που πολλοί τους χαρακτηρίζουν “λαθραίους”. Για όποιους δε γνωρίζουν σε τι αναφέρομαι θα δώσω κάποιες λέξεις κλειδιά: πρόσφυγες, στρατόπεδα φιλοξενίας μεταναστών, Ε.Ε., πόλεμος, φτώχεια, εμπορία ανθρώπων, εξαθλίωση. Καλώς ήρθατε στον 21ο αιώνα, σ’ ένα Γαλαξία όχι μακριά από δω…” “Εσείς πλύνατε τα χέρια σας;” Μολύβι και σπρέι σε χαρτί 60*84 εκ 2020
