FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR* is
1. a machinic artistic medium in transition,
2. an assemblage of singularities,
3. a migrating dispositive of names, bodies, organs, instruments,
knowledge and lack of knowledge,
private and public histories and places
and the gaps, differences, misrecognitions between
them (...)
A CLOUDish wALL IS HAUNTING THE WORLD_by FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR*
is a performative video installation in the form of a music album about the complicated relationship between artistic production and institutionalized knowledge production.

It was especially conceived and designed for the international conference "Institutions, Politics, Performance” which took place on the premises of the occupied Green Park Athina in Athens (GR) on September 24 – 28, 2015 (https://institutionspoliticsperformance.wordpress.com/).

The work consists of a video projection which was part of a live performance.

FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR* (FAAFAu) is the moderator of a fictitious panel discussion. While FOR AN ANONYMOUS FUGITIVE AUTHOR* presents the panel, the audience is watching a video in a form of a music album about the complicated (hierarchical) relationship between artistic production and institutionalized knowledge. The performance stages a panel presentation as a radical rearrangement of all material aspects involved in a panel discussion: table, chairs, plinths, microphones and the audience.
Vassiliea Stylianidou studied Literature and Linguistics at the University of Ioannina (GR) and Visual Arts (B.F.A., M.F.A.) at the University of the Arts Berlin (UdK Berlin). She works as a video and installation artist, using in her works related artistic media such as text, sound/music and performance. Her artistic process involves a constant renegotiation of public and private history, as well as public and private spaces. Her work deal with the limits inherent in systems of order and discipline such as architecture, body, power, family, gender and language. Especially in relation to language, she is interested in experimental ways of using it which challenge and subvert its everyday use in an attempt to suggest new paradigms for knowledge and experience. Her work has been exhibited at nGbK, Berlin; SMU Berlin, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Haus am Kleistpark, Berlin; quartier21/MuseumsQuartier, Vienna; Fotohof, Salzburg; VCA Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Melbourne; C.R.A.C, Sète (F); KUNSTHALLE ATHENA, Athens; Onassis Cultural Center, Athens; Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki; The National Museum for Contemporary Art, Athens; State Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki; Art in General, NYC. She has also participated in the Prague Biennale and in the parallel programme of the Athens and Thessaloniki Biennials. She is member of the feminist queer project Aphrodite*. In 2011 she founded the collaborative project STUDIOvisits Berlin.
She lives and works in Berlin and Athens. www.stylianidou.com
