is going to talk at Avtonomi Akadimia about his recent book “Kampos” and the enigmatic world of Kampos in the island of Chios where all short of entanglements between human and no human are taking place. Kampos for Stratis is not an isolated place but a land of hybrid terrains and zones of outlandish encounter, a hatching refuge between heterogenous identities, critters and memories that resist the anthropocentric divisions, the dualistic simplifications of our time. In Kampos, myths beliefs, stories are constantly fermented with the presence of people, animals and trees, composing and decomposing, revealing possibilities of the past, present and yet to come.
