Participative event, held daily in public space. A stack of official EU documents is placed on a desk, the verticality of which symbolises the authoritative power of “EU directives”. The pile is a kind of catalogue of the administrative calamities piled onto the Greeks. Participants are invited to tear a page off the pile, turn it over; then write their own directive. What would they do for Greece? Solutions? Ideas? Dreams,visions?

The freshly issued demo directive is then placed on the ground, “EU side” down, deploying the demodirectives in a horizontal mind-map -occupying public space.
