A transportable box with dimensions 200X230X200cm (made of chipboard and painted inside with black paint) has a clear reference to the cabinets of curiosities or wunderkammer, which served as the first platforms of collecting things until their transformation to current museums. The orientation of the participants (contributing at the exhibition with paintings, sculptures and artists books, in small dimensions at the size of a miniature ) comment on the course and the political situation of the Greek reality, a country with strong political changes, while exhibited in the area of Metaxourgio ,a place affected strongly by these changes ,issuing themes such as immigration, marginalization, etc. The box is an intermediate space and acts as a file repository, can be transferred while hiding what is inside it. Visitors of the exhibition can have a fragmented view of the exhibited artworks through specially designed, small windows, holes while can have a comprehensive view of the box going up a ladder and watch inside from above.
