Until 1980, people in Greece were living in relative “normality”. Athens was a chaotic city that in spite its decadence looked interesting and enchanting. In 2008, Eva Stefani showed her project Bathers,in which she followed a group of elderly Greek men and women who met every summer at various spa towns around Greece.
In 1966, Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica produced a project in which both participants’ wrists were tied by an elastic band in the shape of a Möbius strip.
