Loukas Vasilikos

This project is autobiographical; it is about my family. My goal is to give a contemporary view into the interior, psychological composition of the Greek family, usually invisible to the eye, yet completely redefined by the daily adversities of the financial crisis. Young people, no longer able to afford and cope with tremendous financial demands often return to their “paternal hearth”. I have been observing the patriarchal family, recording personal moments shared between its members . Thus my family becomes “naked"; its untold human weaknesses are exposed. This “nakedness” aims at honesty and self-judgement, necessary elements during these vulnerable times for Greek social reality. I invite and challenge the viewer to now consider under these terms his own family.
