FOFI’S Berlin

FOFI’S, Berlin
Fofi Akrithaki’s Berlin: 1969 - 1997

Curators: Denys Zacharopoulos & Alexios Papazacharias
Duration: 17 May – 3 Nοvember 2013

Museum Alex Mylona – Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art presents the exhibition FOFI’S, Berlin - Fofi Akrithaki’s Berlin: 1969 – 1997, curated by Denys Zacharopoulos and Alexios Papazacharias. This exhibition is a tribute to Fofi Akrithaki’s ΕΣΤΙΑΤΟΡΙΟΝ (ESTIATORION), which had been for twenty years one of the most famous “hangouts”, not only in Berlin but across Europe, and will be remembered by the name Fofi’s. The exhibition will run until the 3rd of November.

According to Alexios Papazacharias, the curator of the exhibition:
From 1972 to 1997, the exuberant personality of cosmopolitan Fofi Akrithaki brought together international leading figures in art, literature, cinema, theater, fashion, music and politics. Throughout its operation, Fofi’s will remain not only a hangout, a rendezvous, a place to socialise and a top restaurant, but also a meeting point for endless discussions, at a time and a city where the history of Europe was being rewritten.


In the exhibition FOFI’S, Berlin – Fofi Akrithaki’s Berlin: 1969 -1997, documents from the restaurant’s years of operation are presented as well as works by: Alexis Akrithakis, Christos Bouronikos, Yannis Kourakis, Rebecca Horn, Robert Rauschenberg, Francis Bacon, Max Ernst, Robert Wilson, Ed Kienholz, Jannis Kounellis, Thierry Noir, Markus Lüpertz, Günter Brus, Yannis Psychopedis, Pavlos, Michel Würthle, Lizzie Calligas, Jakob Mattner, Heiner Müller, Thomas Brasch, Wolfgang Rihm, Bernd Koberling, Lucio Fanti, Takis, Oswald Wiener, Gerhard Rühm, Dieter Roth, Hermann Nitsch, Martin Kippenberger.
