GOLEM - To be generative in solidarity rather than creative in solitude is an online collective performance event, curated by the collaborator of InArts Francesco Kiais

Through this artistic action and our ongoing initiative for the creation of a solidarity fund for the decentralized production of medical protective equipment in Athens, as artists we stand by local groups to limit the effects of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Our initiative to develop a blockchain application that brings together decentralized local supply chains, empowering individuals, and smaller communities to take action during the Covid-19 crisis and beyond, was recently awarded in the international ConsenSys Health STOP COVID-19 Hackathon, that brought together more than 500 participants from over 70 countries, with the support of over 50 healthcare and life sciences professionals. consensyshealth.com

The artistic event GOLEM - To be generative in solidarity rather than creative in solitude will be symbolically realized as a collection of different performative actions taking place in spaces chosen by the artists, but being transmitted and displayed simultaneously online. The audience will be free to move around in the virtual “rooms” of live or recorded performances.

The virtual exhibition space will open to the public on June 5, with the vernissage at 18.00 GMT+3, which will be a presentation of the guests’ of honor participating artworks. The collective action of the transmission of the live performances will begin at 19.30.
