On the School Group “De Monstris”:
This series of sessions, lead by Despina Zacharopoulou, explores the notion of the monster with a particular focus on performance art. The word ‘monster’ derives from the latin verb ‘monstrare’ which means; to reveal, to show, to exhibit. Nevertheless, any single definition of the monstrous is impossible; the concept itself seems to shift and change in time and space. For Michel Foucault, ‘There are monsters on the prowl, whose form changes with the history of knowledge’. In this group every student attempts to trace what is the monstrous for them and present a relevant performance piece during the final session.
