Model Young Gestures

A British-Belgian girl works in the secluded hills of southern Portugal. A group of students in Brussels trains diplomacy skills to take part in simulations of UN conferences. In the rehearsal room, on unwrought land, burgeon essential words and gestures.


“Only the idiot has access to the wholly other.”

— Byung-Chul Han, Psychopolitics


Athens 2018. 44% of youth is unemployed. Five young non-actors are ‘waiting’ for their ‘adulthood’. They represent their own lives yet are captured in a fictional plot. They yearn to forget their idle futures while fooling around in luxurious Airbnb rentals.


“If youth is the season of hope, it is often so only in the sense that our elders are hopeful about us. And each crisis seems final simply because it’s new.”

George Eliot
