The Reception is a four and a half hour artistic urban walk for up to 15 participants in the town of Moss, Norway, first staged in September 2018. The walk is special in that nothing is staged. Rather, the stage is the mind of the audience, with Mistriotis using the city itself to weave a series of stories, reflections, and readings. Østfold Internasjonale Teater curator-producer James Moore and artist Alexandros Mistriotis will discuss their collaborative process to research, develop, and implement the walk, which was premised upon Mistriotis’ work of the same name in his hometown of Athens, Greece. The framework for the undertaking was the question: Is it possible to create something similar in a place Mistriotis had never visited?

The work required a close cooperation that stretched across and between five residency periods beginning in June of 2017. In a conversation moderated by Marine Thevenet, Moore and Mistriotis will discuss their practices prior to the commission, the context in the provincial towns of Moss and Fredrikstad, and their process, methodology, and activities that engaged a variety of local inhabitants in order to develop the work. They will also reflect upon how they each have benefited through their ongoing collaboration.

In Hungary, under the present political regime, if an artist or a festival intends to create in public space, they have to relate to an over-politicized public realm which is one of the most important platforms of the political propaganda of the government. On the other hand, Hungarian operators have to face different obstacles to accessing public spaces..

Fanni Nanáy gave some examples of how Hungarian public spaces have been changing during the past 9 years, in line with the political agenda of the authoritarian government. Together with the artivist Zoltán Várady, she questionned the different strategies of artists and cultural professionals  to face this reality. 

Participant (to be confirmed):
Fanni Nanáy, Artopolis and PLACCC festival, Budapest (HU)
Zoltán Várady, Hungarian Two Tailed Dog Party, Budapest (HU)
