XYZ Outlet #18: KERNEL | Index of Potential | Tuesday September 27th from 20:00 to 21:00 strictly | Perdika 8 & Achileos, Metaxourgeio, 104 36, Athens 

XYZ Outlet continues, “DRY: No drinks, no party, just an art quickie”. On Tuesday 27 September we are presenting Index of Potential by the curatorial project KERNEL.

XYZ Outlet will be open to the public for one hour only, as always, between 20:00 and 21:00.

The Index of Potential is an open, online collection of texts that function as theoretical or practical tools, related to ways of distribution, access and management of information of any kind, as a cultural product. Anyone can access the information and contribute.

The Index is part of KERNEL’s wider research on contemporary practices of knowledge and information production and distribution, leading to the development of the idea of a restored and reconfigured ‘oral culture’ brought about through the proliferation of digital media and network communications.

On the occasion of the presentation of the Index of Potential at XYZ Outlet, KERNEL have invited a network of the Index’s contributors to submit new content that will be printed as a specially designed poster and handout. Using the added content either as source material or as inspiration, KERNEL will also present a video work. The video constitutes an abstract, hour-long narrative structure around the idea of the “economy of creativity”. Functioning as another possible information distribution channel, the video explores the structure of dispersion through storytelling


KERNEL represents a collaborative project between Pegy Zali, Petros Moris and Theodoros Giannakis. Functioning as a platform of artistic research and curation, KERNEL investigates the contemporary condition of cultural production, re-production, distribution and experience.

KERNEL has curated projects including Full/Operational/Toolbox (Temporary Project Space M21, Athens 2010) and BYOB London (The Woodmill, London 2011). It has participated in projects including SFD (National Technical University, Athens2009) and KAM Workshops (Center of Mediterranean Architecture, Venetian port, Chania Crete 2011).
