Ruins Magazine presents new forms of resistance in Thank You for Believing in Me opening at Material Art Fair, Feb 9

6 February 2017

Ruins Magazine is presenting the Thank You for Believing in Me group exhibition at Mexico City’s Edificio Humboldt, opening February 9 and running to February 12.  

Happening alongside the Mexican capital’s Material Art Fair, the London-published and Athens-printed publication will exhibit newly commissioned video-based works in a show curated by Christos Petritzis and Guillermo Martinez de Velasco. The four -day event will feature pieces by Whitney Mallett, Chloe Wise, Debora Delmar Corp, Eva Giannakopoulou, Oscar Ramos, Ruth Angel Edwards, Marcel Alcalá, Rachel Woroner, Chino Amobi, and Manuela de Laborde among others.

In response to the trending currents of “fascism, neoliberalism and white supremacy,” the press release roots the show from “one neo-colony to another” in varied iterations of resistance.

To hear more about the project, check out their interview on Berlin Community Radio.

Ruins Issue 1 launch @ Atopos CVC, Jan 4

4 January 2016

The second launch party of the first issue of Ruins Magazine, set up by Christos Petritzis is on at Athens’ Atopos CVC on January 4.

Tying together fashion with politics and working between London and Athens, the publication addresses what it is like to live in what it calls “the prolonged moment of euphoric marketing”. It collects voices, photographs and dialogue around urbanism and its future within capitalism.

The first launch took place in London’s ACE hotel on November 24 last year and a video made for SHOWstudio called ‘Declaration’ documents its making.

See the FB event page for (limited) details.**
