Presented by Onassis Foundation, artist Kostis Velonis’s Life Without Tragedy, developed with architect Christian Kotzamanis and initially created for the acclaimed Onassis Festival 2019: Democracy Is Coming, explores the intersection of democracy and theater — perhaps Greece’s two greatest contributions. The work consists of three wood sculptures that mimic an ancient Greek amphitheater, a place that was a social institution and a site for political discourse as well as a venue for art.
