Karaoke Poetry Bar is a multimodal installation which combines poetry, performance and video.

Participant artists and visitors are thus involved in the contingence of utopia.Karaoke Poetry Bar is a real although temporary karaoke bar where pop songs on the stage monitor have been replaced by poems written by Greek poets who have emerged within the last 10 years. During recitation, the poems await to be challenged by the audacity and the intentions of the audience.
Within the same space, video works by contemporary Greek artists will be presented in a video installation. The video works are documentations of performances in public spaces around
