  • [01] Navarro's 'City' at Athens' Megaron

    An original art installation-cum-game created by Spanish sculptor Miguel Navarro has been set up at the Athens Concert Hall 'Megaron' as part of the Megaron Plus exhibition programme, where it will run until March 23. "Travels in the City: In the Moonlight II" comes to Greece from the Centre Pompidou in Paris and is aimed at children aged six to 12 years, who are invited to dream up and create their "own city" within the artwork while it is in Athens.

    A sculpture that has travelled around Europe's museums and galleries for more than a decade, this original work of art spreads over an area of 50 square metres and looks like a city seen from above. It is made up of repeated and combined geometric elements, like blocks, pyramids, towers and columns, which children are invited to combine in different ways under the guidance of special teaching staff during workshops that last roughly 90 minutes.

    The aim of the workshop is to better acquaint children with their city and neighbourhood and to help them understand the complexity of the urban environment while encouraging them to create change within it.

    The budding architects and city planners reshape spaces, creating their own ideal cities and new urban landscapes built from their imagination.

    The natiowide grief over Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos' death and the turnout of people at the Athens Metropolitan Cathedral to pay their last respects, the process for the succession, the Zachopoulos affair and main opposition PASOK party parliament member and former candidate for the party's leadership Evangelos Venizelos' decision to put a full stop to the conflict with PASOK leader George Papandreou dominated the headlines on Wednesday in Athens' newspapers.
