Strange Switch is part of an exhibition celebrating the work of George Tourkovasilis (1944-2021) that opens simultaneously at Radio Athènes, Melas Martinos and Akwa Ibom. Tourkovasilis, a writer, philosopher, art critic and photographer who lived and worked in Athens, Paris and London is mostly known for his collaboration with Greek painter Yiannis Tsarouchis, and two iconic publications: The Rock Diaries (1984) and Motorcycle Ceremonies (1981). This 3-venue show brings together for the first time more than 250 photographic works —portraits of lovers, friends, and models taken in his home studio; young motorcyclists in Keratsini; punk rock and new wave concerts in Athens in the 70s and 80s; people in the street, and interiors.

Warm thanks to Natasa Koliou, Kyriakos Tsiflakos, Marina Legaki and Tasos Gkaintazis.

Melas Martinos ‘Strange Switch’, Radio Athènes ‘The Night, Sleep’ and Akwa Ibom ‘Spent’.
