HELEN'S DRESS - e-Residency, workshop & exhibition project in Vienna & online






The archaic origins of powerful women's attire




• e-Residency: 20 - 22 August 2021

• Exhibition I:  Leonidio, Arcadia (22 - 29 October 2021)

• Exhibition II:  Puuul Gallery_VIENNA ART WEEK (5 - 20 Νovember 2021)

• LIVE online presentation (20 November 2021)

• Catalogue edition in SMCK Magazine For Independent Artists (November 2021 issue)


Open call:

Helen's Dress  - The Tsakonian Dress (Tzoubelou) is a combined digital/physical project consisting of an intensive 3-day virtual residency & workshop (part I), plus a double gallery exhibition in Leonidio, Arcadia and Vienna, Austria (part II). Additionally, project participants will be presented online in a moderated live online event (part III) and in SMCK Magazine’s 5th digital and print issue.

The project applies to multimedia and interdisciplinary artists, jewelry and fashion designers, performers who wish to combine various disciplines, such as jewelry and textile art, story telling, mythology and performance.

The goal is to create new works and objects, a photo narrative and a video.



Helen is the immortal daughter Zeus and Leda.  Like her mother, Helen is the queen of Sparta. She is the personification of beauty, the ruler, the cause of war, the mistress, the faithful and the unfaithful wife, the mother, the scapegoat. Like the moon – her name's meaning in Greek – Helen gets lost and comes back.

How did this divine woman dress? We may guess by studying the Tsakonian Tzoubelou dress, scarlet and gold, gown and skirt, topped by a delicate velvet fes, and worn over a long white dalmatica shirt.

The art/design project reconstructs Helen's identity through the media textile, jewelry, performance, photography and video. Artists and designers participate in an intensive 3-day e-Residency in late August 2021 and reflect on the mythical figure of Helen.


Helen's Dress e-Residency aims at inspiring artists, designers, writers, performers and photographers to develop their own contemporary version of the ancient Greek myth. The archaic red and golden Tzoubelou dress of Tsakonia will be the starting point to deal with non-verbal expressions of feminity, hierarchy, power, women's history, glamor, awe and pride. The 3-day workshop program also addresses current issues that have a negative impact on women's lives, such as misogyny, abuse, manipulation, fake news, conflict.

The e-Residency introduces artists into the tradition of Greek art and culture, emphasizing narrative, Greek mythology, jewelry art, dress culture, women's history, performance and design.

It also aims to deal with applied art and design questions on how dresses may reflect power, determination, empathy, feminity, dominance, sexuality.


Double exhibition / online and magazine presentation:

Participants' work - objects, photo narrative, video - will be presented in two group exhibitions.

The first exhibition (22-29 October 2021) will take place in the 19th century historical town of Leonidio in Arcadia, Greece. The town is famous for preserving Greece's oldest traditions, including textiles, kilims and dresses, the doric dialect, dance and architecture. The dates chosen refer to the autumn holiday season for Greek and foreign visitors. The exhibition will present participants' photos and videos in public buildings, cultural venues and private spaces in the historical heart of Leonidio.


The second exhibition takes place in Puuul Gallery in downtown Vienna, Austria, from (5 – 20 November 2021), during Vienna Art Week (13-20 Νovember 2021).

An interactive online presentation of participants (interviews and videos), as well as a website documentation, will promote participants' work to art specialists, collectors and art lovers around the globe.

The project will be documented and presented in the fifth issue of SMCK Magazine.





e-Residency concept:

The idea of the eResidency program reflects the tradition of 18th and 19th century travelers in Greece whose impressions greatly influenced artists and intellectuals in their own countries. Johann Joachim Winckelmann, archaeologist and founder of the Art History discipline, for example, never visited Greece, but developed his approach based on what he had read or heard from travelers. German poets Goethe and Hoelderlin found inspiration in Greek antiquity without ever having visited the country. The rediscovery of "Greek aesthetics" in art, architecture and fashion, and the revival of democracy in the age of enlightenment was more a product of imagination than of physical presence.

references:  A similar eResidency - Helen's Dress - exclusively designed for and funded by Stavros Niarchos Foundation, was realized by us in June 2020 after their original idea "Helen's Dress".

REAKTOR Potenziale






The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s call for concepts is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

Selection criteria:

- Art experience | The Open Call is looking for works that address the topic of reason and emotion.

- A balance between conceptual depth and material precision | Previously completed works featured in the portfolio will be taken into consideration when assessing the submission.

- Preference will be given to objects and/or concepts that make full use of the main hall’s sizeable volume.

- Site specificity | Optionally a dialogue is to be sought with the genius loci (in terms of architecture and/or content).

- Feasibility | Budget, public safety

Prizes Details: 

The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a one week’s residency in summer 2021 and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition in the second half of October 2021.

Improper Walls calls for applications on the topic IN*AUDIBLE & NON*VISUAL, which will be examined in an exhibition, performances and workshops. All mediums and formats, scales and visions are welcome, especially AV installations and performances. The exhibition will take place at Improper Walls’ exhibition space, as well as in partner locations and public spaces. 


The aim of this project is to illuminate all aspects of soundwaves, across all possibilities, from warfare to sound art, from noise pollution to scientific use, from communication to music. IMPROPER WALLS aims to generate attention in order to give the audience food for thought at precisely this intersection of arts and sciences, and to make sound waves through unusual practices perceptible as a sensory experience.


We already encounter the power of sounds since ancient civilizations. The use of infrasound weapons has been discussed since the 1960s, and are currently part of standardized military and crowd control equipment worldwide. The scope of this highly political issue affects environmental and climate protection as well as basic human rights.

On the other hand groundbreaking achievements in medical research and therapy have been made possible through the use of infra and ultrasound waves. Music and sound art are undisputed highlights of human culture.  The open call aims to embrace multiple perspectives and approaches.
