Bank of No: Nicosia



Bank of No: Event Program: February 1, 2016 7:30 PM, at Leventis Gallery: Lecture and discussion about new artistic practices related to politics and activism from the streets to art galleries. 10:00 PM, at Point Centre for Contemporary Art Dance Party featuring an elixir from sounds of Goa, Santiago and Berlin and improvised spoken word in a visual installation. Deep within the cold night of Cypriot Austerity stands a bank. In front of this former headquarters of the financial crisis, now without visible brand or logo, a strange sculpture emerges from the ground. This is the debt spiral: its sharp point pierces the air. The 2013 crisis in Cyprus represents only one point of a new politics of inequality, which can be seen across the globe. Bank of No is a rebranding initiative for the banking crisis. We, a working group of artists from several countries, connect our political conditions to Cyprus, and propose a panoramic view. Against capitalistic envy we introduce the evil eye for protection and solidarity. Bank of No ends when the eye closes and we dance… Project by : Noah Fischer , Raúl Hott, Joulia Strauss , Csaba Nemes , Nurtane Karagil , twenty three #BankofNo
