Slower, Smaller, Weaker addresses social, economic, and political transitions of contemporary Greek society, as epitomized in the mutated 2004 Athens Olympic Village. In collaboration with the Olympic Village Residents Association, the project includes an exhibition, film screenings, and workshops.

Giorgos Nikas (b. 1978, Athens) is a visual artist based in Athens. He studied Conservation of Antiquities at TEI of Athens and painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts. His practice includes painting, installations, and public interventions.

Alexandra Streshna (b. 1987, Lviv, Ukraine) is an Athens-based painter and independent curator. Instrumentalization of historical testimony, artificiality of fundamental truths, and the process of myth-making are some of the recurring themes in her practice. She studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts and received a master's degree in fine art from Central Saint Martins, London.
