Urban Dysfunctions

Dimitris Tsoublekas´ theme is the city. In his manipulative photo works he debunks the conformism of urban landscapes and the life in the city. By means of montages he cynically comments the endeavor of the migrants from the land to lead a cosmopolitan life in "living rooms" which are stereotypically furnished, in suburbs which are gradually being changed into many little Manhattans. Tsoublekas shows that the Parthenon is no longer an integral part of the city landscape but nothing more than a reservation for tourists and a prestigious exhibit. The latest series of pictures by the 1967 born citizen of Athens is entitled "Open Kitchen (Broken Homes)" and was at display this year at the Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center.
