Vyrsodepseio has been the largest tannery in the Balkans in the 19th century and has been claimed as a preserved building from the Ministry of Culture (all activities run under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture).Artist Network

YRSODEPSEIO is an independent space for the arts, for artists/ by artists. VYRSODEPSEIO is an old tannery, a space, where animal skin was torn off. The art produced there, tries to keep that tradition alive.In times, when Greece has become a project, -an experiment, -a work in progress (progress? – or regress?), our work is inevitably an experimental project in progress…VYRSODEPSEIO is a pool of people, who work together, and then part. People from different disciplines (theatre, music, dance, fine arts, film/video, literature, architecture and also politics). The common ground to work together is the space, – the old tannery – and also the effort to find new ways to produce independent art. The MC of VYRSODEPSEIO (MC =Master of Ceremony), the person who connects it all is Elli Papakonstantinou. – Artists come and go, the MC stays. As people go, come back, go again or stay, gradually a “group” is forming. VYRSODEPSEIO itself is an experimental project in progress…Aims

(-of course we have!)

– to work together with others and create a frontline of new aesthetics – in other words: to do what we want.

– to create a network of artists, to become a collectivity, to gather more groups  – in other words: to be strong.

– to have the ability, to point out social structures, habits, political situations, which we want to change

– to have artistic articulation  – in other words: to be heard, be seen.

– to become so strong and independent, that we can do what we want and still be heard and seen  – in other words: to become famous and rich.
