AGORA 4th Athens Biennale 2013 / Yota Ioannidou (DAI, 2009) / The Storyteller, The Knife and The 'Machine' / Lecture Performance
Yota Ioannidou's work combines visual documentation, discussions and interviews that act to question and cross-examine phenomena triggered and maintained by various hierarchical structures for political, cultural or social reasons.
The Storyteller, The Knife and The "Machine" lecture performance has as its starting point a historical event, a riot against Othon (1862) and more specifically, the riot in Kapnikarea by Greek and Italian libertarians. The narrative also introduces another event – the assault with a knife perpetrated on November 3, 1896 by Dimitris Matsalis against two prominent citizens of Patras, a banker and a sultana merchant, on Gerokostopoulou St. (formerly Anexartissias St.). The research focuses on how the libertarian movement developed in Greece through printed material that circulated in the 19th c. and other documents of that time.
