THE A - DASH ISSUE OF THE SUNNY DAYS
The A-DASH issue of Sunny Days was published by Cube Art Editions on the occasion of the exhibition "The collection as an Automaton" curated by Elpida Karaba and organised by the Frances Rich School of Fine and Performing Arts as part of the Arts Festival Exhibition at the American College of Greece in February 2019. ACG Art Gallery, The American College of Greece, Athens
The publication traces the early history of the American College of Greece through the first issues of the student magazine "Sunny Days". The A-DASH team has selected and appropriated images and texts focusing on those aspects, fictitious or not, that seem to compose its current identity and create connections with the past editions of the magazine. Aspects such as: the feminine perspective, the use of English language, as well as that, of the foreigner’s view largely and particularly on Greece. Consequently
The A-DASH issue of Sunny Days is not just an appropriation or even a re-examination of the past but mostly a research of A-DASH’s own fluid identity constructed rhizomatically, everyday, through senses and affects. Within this approach A-DASH has also invited current students of ACG to perform readings from the actual edition.
