At Home: Despina Stokou

Meet the wonderful Despina Stokou, the sedulous force behind so many projects and professions, you might not believe she still had the time to welcome me in her small apartment full of character in Mitte.

She’s not only the founder, publisher and main contributor for the independent art guide Bigs, where she assembles every independent art event that happens in this city and publishes it as a bi-monthly guide in print and online. She’s also been involved in Grimm museum, where she organizes the speed portfolio viewings, curates shows and manages the press relations, and furthermore, she’s an artist in her own right. With exhibitions in New York, Vienna and now finally Berlin.

She’ll open a solo exhibition of her very intense paintings during Gallery Weekend tonight at Krobath gallery in Mitte.
