Have you ever experienced a so-called epiphany while taking a lifeless shower in the shared bathroom of your shared apartment? It is that very moment when existential thoughts strike, and you realize that the only time that you truly connect to your inner self is when the continuous flow of purifying water helps you wash your most sensitive parts of your hangover-suffering body and mind on a Sunday evening. Well, now try to rewind and remember what you did last night that caused this enlightening circumstance.

The answer lies in a small bar called Ela Na Sou Po behind Karaiskaki Square at Metaksourgio area in the center of Athens. Infamous streets of a working-class district, where voices coming from past century’s local artists called Rebetes and outlaws, meet an emerging art scene represented by hype contemporary art galleries and artist-run studios, surround ENSP.
