Participation with the  project:
IT’S TIME TO OPEN THE BLACK BOXES!

IT’S TIME TO OPEN THE BLACK BOXES!  is a participatory art project initiated by artist Danae Stratou. Living in Greece in this time of multiple crises, it is ever so easy to fall into a state of fear-induced paralysis. By opening the ‘Black Boxes’ we symbolically bring to light the words that reflect what threatens us the most, or that which we are desperately eager to preserve. The open call cycle is re-activated each time the project is travels in a new city. The project has been exhibited in Athens, Greece (2012), in Krems, Austria (2016) and the next stop in Paris, France (2017).
