Our friend and collaborator, artist Oliver Ressler has made some of his films available on his new Youtube channel. He will add a film every week.
His work often explores the power structures within the global economy. Films such as 'Right of Passage' and 'Border Crossing' explore the ideas of migration and the movement of people, and the film 'The Visible and Invisible' look at the movement of commodities and its impact on the global south. ...

In these last days of July, we started working on the mural at Isola Pepe Verde. The work celebrates all the people who make this garden possible, and stands as a manifestation that defends green and self-organised spaces in the city.
The work is realised by Edith Poirier and Edna Gee.
A shout out to Sabrina, Marinella, Kathy and Chiara from Isola Pepe Verde, who helped cleaning and preparing the sheet metal before. @ Isola Pepe Verde ... See MoreSee Less

Edith Poirier's work in support of the workers of VIOME factory. There are only a few prints left.**These are the last days to order a screen print and support the workers of ΣΕ ΒΙΟΜΕ the prints will be shipped out on June 1st** **Sono gli ultimi giorni per acquistare una serigrafia e dare una mano ai compagni della ΣΕ ΒΙΟΜΕ le stampe saranno spedite il 1 giugno** 𝗩𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗮 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗳𝗶𝘁 𝗩𝗜𝗢𝗠𝗘 𝗕𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗳𝗶𝘁 𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻-𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝗹𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗩𝗜𝗢𝗠𝗘 👉 www.edithpoirier.com/shop/ ✊ 𝘌𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘩: I would like to bring solidarity to the workers of VIOME, a self-managed factory in Thessaloniki, whom have always welcomed me with open arms and with whom I have had the pleasure to collaborate with in the past. Even though they produce personal hygiene and cleaning products, essential items during this pandemic, the government took advantage of the emergency and cut the power of the factory, pushing forward the repression towards a reality that shows how another world is possible. I’m selling a screen print which I created for this occasion, with the intention of sending all proceeds to VIOME, which now more than ever has the necessity to buy generators to continue their production. In these last weeks the workers dedicated their production to making soap to send to Moria, where they don’t have any, and to the prisons, abandoned by the State. The recommended price for the screen print is 25 euros but you can also name your price, so anyone can contribute. For the shipping, let’s figure something out to try to reduce the costs as much as possible in order to send the full donations to VIOME. 𝗩𝗜𝗢𝗠𝗘 𝗪𝗜𝗟𝗟 𝗥𝗘𝗠𝗔𝗜𝗡 𝗜𝗡 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗞𝗘𝗥𝗦’ 𝗛𝗔𝗡𝗗𝗦 👉 www.edithpoirier.com/shop/ ✊ 𝘐𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘰: Coi miei mezzi voglio portare solidarietà alle compagne e compagni di VIOME, fabbrica autogestita di Salonicco, che mi ha sempre accolta a braccia aperte e con cui ho avuto modo di collaborare in passato. Nonostante producano articoli d’igiene e pulizia, oggi più che mai necessari, il governo ha pensato di approfittare della situazione d’emergenza per staccargli la corrente, portando avanti la repressione nei confronti di una realtà che dimostra come un altro mondo sia possibile. Metto in vendita una serigrafia che ho creato per l’occasione, con l’intenzione di devolvere tutti i ricavati alla VIOME, che ha ora la necessità di comprare dei generatori elettrici per continuare la produzione. Proprio in queste ultime settimane si erano dedicati alla produzione di sapone destinato a Moria, dove la gente non ne ha, e alle carceri, abbandonate dallo Stato. La serigrafia è a offerta libera, chiunque può contribuire, il prezzo consigliato è 25 euro, e per quanto riguarda la spedizione proviamo a venirci incontro, così da ridurre i costi e inviare alla VIOME più soldi possibile.
