People Like Us in Athens

Shadow Libraries: UbuWeb in Athens

16-18 MARCH 2018

Inside & Outside the OCC

What is UbuWeb? Is an archive capable to propose a different sort of art history? 3 days of talks and workshops in order to explore this and other shadow libraries.

People Like Us will be part of an UbuWeb conference in Athens later this month.  It will include artist talks and group discussions, workshops and a WORLD PREMIERE of a work in progress version of our new single screen a/v performance The Mirror.  Yes, we’ve not quite finished it yet (!) but this is too good a platform to not use since UbuWeb is our internet home.  Tickets for The Mirror: http://www.sgt.gr/eng/SPG2098/
