Tomorrow, Thursday November 9th, the publication [UN]FINISHED will officially launch at HYPER HYPO in Athens, Greece. With a performative intervention by the artists followed by readings and a dialogue with art theorist Elpida Karaba, and architect Platon Issaias.
With this work in the form of a book, Maria Lalou & Skafte Aymo-Boot present the phenomenon of a particular pending architecture mutely present all over Athens. The concrete skeletons of Polykatoikia -multi-story apartment buildings- are emblematic of the development of modern Greece throughout the second half of the twentieth century.
By Maria Lalou & Skafte Aymo-Boot, and design by Sam de Groot.
Made possible with the support of The J.F. Costopoulos Foundation, and Statens Kunstfond.

'With its character of a ruin of a forgotten purpose the unfinished building is at the same time pointing to the past and to the future.'
