Performative Lecture 

"Socially Engaged? Better, Socially Married!" Georgia Kotretsos offers to marry intelligent, creative individuals who wish to live, work and do research in Greece for a long period of time. There will be an open call for applications; three to five-year visas will be granted and after a two month period, Kotretsos will divorce the individual. This is a proposal to EU citizens as an editorial gesture: marriage should be more than a freely undertaken transaction, or simply grounded in the physical; it should encompass the civil and the intellectual attributes of ourselves. Kotretsos will use identity as a medium and her EU rights as capital. The discussion will extend to Greek's entanglement with Turkey in its recent history and more recent investment relationships with China. Sponsored by Angeles Mira | Architecture
