Queering Theogony for Alternative Futures: Introduction

  • Communitism, Athens (GR) 28 Keramikou Athina, 104 36 Greece (map)

Following the critical reading group, that toom place in AMOQA (Athens Museum of Queer Arts) in February, Avenir Institute, Rodrigo Andreolli and Gian Spina continue experimental analysis of anticipatory work with the content and the context of Hesiod’s Theogony. Focusing on figures of Athena and Dionysos, as well as other potent protagonists of the poem such as Aphrodite, Styx, Medea and Prometheus, they will speak about the process of their collective critical analysis and its implications. How unlocking the potency of the past can change the possibility of alternative futures? 

During one month of open to public sessions, the research group will collaboratively work on futures-oriented continuation of Hesiod’s Theogony and develop potentiality of the characters and events of the classical text. The result will be presented in the form of performative oral storytelling, where the myth of the desirable future will be told, which will be held on April 22. 

During this talk, we will also announce how the working process and structure of our work will be set up during our time in Communitism. 

Everyone is welcome!
