Y.Tzirtzilakis proposes 'Loan' by Lina Theodorou as a reference to this year's preoccupation with derelict buildings.

Lina Theodorou in "Loan" is documenting the remains of 'bankrupt' places: "ghost factories, depressed areas, abandoned villages and places of no possible interest to tourists". The artist is interested in: "sites and the sights that would give me free rein to redefine the concepts of development and of disaster, and to define a personal mapping of regions that contradict the unreal image projected by the media, folklore documentaries, tourist guides and advertising." By constructing/documenting the image of a dystopic reality is for the artist a way to criticize practices that tend to present a distorted image of reality for commercial or political reasons.
