  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Publication
    Witty Books
    International

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis.

    Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art

These works explore the intricacies of how power is communicated through media culture and language. In adapting personas, characters, and unrehearsed conversations, they expand into fable-like takes on the collective and the personal as “institutions”. (more…)
