A few words about the book:
Athens, September 2012: A TV channel launches its own version of the rescue of Greece, airing “The Next Leader”, a new reality show that seems to be a world first, as the winner will be funded for his election campaign.
At the same time, a group of five people, a psychiatrist, a Ph.D. candidate, a chess teacher, a former kiosk and an unemployed accounting director, are presenting a political study as a governance proposal for the country out of recession.
Two parallel worlds, the television democracy with a slightly surreal costume and the social democracy that tries to transcend itself. Will they clash or cooperate? Will they meet or go through an autonomous course?
A journalist follows the new phenomena, fluctuating her distances from the heroes.
The gray landscape of public life is adorned with new shapes that promise, if nothing else, surprises, turmoil and laughter. Is there space and time for a new beginning?
The presentation will take place at the Fabrica Artspace, 125 Meg. Alexandrou & Evrymedontos, on
Tuesday 2 December at 21:00.
