Spazi Docili [Docile Spaces]: Sant'Orsola stories

Hosted in Athens has invited groups of artists and collectives of different background and nationalities to present their activity in various buildings in the center of Athens through a series of events and exhibitions. The project intends to articulate and organize its potentials in the area of the historical center of Athens and to involve public and private venues that can host its program in the means of hospitality. The project seeks to advocate the local art scene and to introduce the work of international artists to the broader Athenian public. To provide the conditions for dialogue and collaboration between groups, communities and individuals and to establish connections between the cities involved emphasizing on the essence of networking and collectivity.
The participatory groups will be able to display their joint collaborations, shows and events in the context of a broader perspective that includes artists, curators, institutions and host venues. The aim of the project is to underpin the importance of collaboration, the individual participation and the exchange between different art scenes and to indicate new ways of working that embrace the values of exchange and hospitality.
Hosted In Athens is organized by Daily Lazy Projects (Dionisis Christofilogiannis, Stelios Karamanolis, Eva Mitala, Tula Plumi, Yorgos Stamkopoulos) based in Athens, Berlin and Cluj Napoca. 

In Athens Spazi Docili [Docile Spaces] will present "Sant'Orsola stories", a cycle of photos about the construction of the statue of Saint Ursula, which we made with the help of the people of the quarter and then carried in procession through the streets of Florence. The sensation for this action called again the media and city attention to the problems of the Sant'Orsola medieval monastery area, neglected for 30 years.
So far there is no news about the beginning of the redevelopment of the complex. In the central court is still open a 4 levels underground car park flooded by rain; weeds and shrubs are growing in the courtyards since thirty years; the huge windows on the outside are bricked up; facades were cemented; wood and stone were replaced by steel and concrete; frescoed vaults were covered with plaster. 
Spazi Docili [Docile Spaces] considers places like this as an opportunity to bring the activities of intellectuals and artists closer to the everyday life of the people, promoting new models of public art, local engagement, participation. In this way becomes possible to join social, political and artistic perspectives.
