17:00 | The Garden as Cosmos and Microcosmos: A lecture by Fay Zika

Following a series of adventures in the globalized landscape of the 18th century, Voltaire’s Candide closes with the suggestion that “we cultivate our garden.” Although Voltaire uses gardens as a critique of the problematics of globalization, the lecture tries to show how through the migration of plants and cultivating techniques, a garden microcosm connects the local with the global.

Fay Zika is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Theory of Art in the Theory Department of the Athens School of Fine Art.

Location: University’s Central Building, Amphitheatre B | Duration: 60 minutes


18:00 | Concert for various objects by Pierre Berthet

Music with drops, balloons, tubes, stones, vacuum cleaner, snail and mussel shells, hooks, dry plants, seeds etc. Blowing, hitting, shaking, moving, singing and more. This performance is part of Borderline Festival 2018, the electronic and experimental music festival that is held by the Onassis Cultural Centre-Athens for the 8th consecutive year.
