In this editorial the co-founder of the Athenian collective “BLNK”, Alex Aravantinos and the Berlin Based photographer, YuLiang Liu, join forces to imagine a modern version of the ancient goddess of wisdom Athena ( AΘΗΝΑ – Greek), an image far from the conservative greek reality. Embracing the upcoming queer and creative desire of the Greek capital they aim to recreate how this figure, that comes back to life after thousands of years, is ready to brake the norms and regain its glory against obsolete stereotypical beliefs.
