KERKIS ECHO is an artistic-philosophical discourse community on Samos.
Chameleons in Marathokampos
Kerkis Echo is back – the artistic-philosophical project on Samos! This year KerkisEcho presents a large mural (12 metres) by Niko Abramidis &NE on the access road to Marathokampos and a solo exhibition by the artist in the Kerkis Echo Artspace on Lakka Square.
Niko Abramidis, born in 1987, is considered one of the shooting stars of the art scene in Germany. He studied at the art academies in Munich and Berlin, had numerous solo exhibitions in international institutions and was granted the ars viva price.
In search of his Greek roots, he has long been dealing with ancient mythology and symbols in his works. Ambiguous, enigmatic, and always humorous at the same time, he connects the past and the future. Dedicated to philosophy, for him art is above all a way to ask questions and try out visionary ideas.
If you only discover a chameleon on the access road to Marathokampos – be careful – it’s worth a second look!

About Kerkis echo
Its goal is to build an international, poetic community of thought on Mount Kerkis overlooking the Aegean Sea, surrounded by the spiritual aura of Pythagoras.
Artists, writers, philosophers, filmmakers, architects and visionaries of all kinds are to enter into dialogue with each other in order to develop interdisciplinary project ideas together with the people of the small mountain town of Marathokampos.
KERKIS ECHO is intended as a lucid experimental laboratory, an aesthetic and intellectual testing ground. It follows in the tradition of legendary mountain collectives such as Monte Verita in Switzerland (1900-1920) and Black Mountain College in the USA (1933-1957). A condensation of intellectual, artistic voices to echo from the Kerkis back into the world.
