Describe me your ideal Athens?
My old ideal Athens is hidden in the stairs and the market on top of the Kolonaki area around Dexameni Squareand the old classic restaurants like Philoppou.My new ideal Athens is the Exarchia area where bobos mix with gentle anarchists.

Is still Paris an ideal place for creative people to live?
Paris has an overwhelming charm consisting in architectural landscapes too good to be true therefore creation there is not easy because challenged by the beauty around.

Is there an ideal place or perfection is boring?
Ideal places are constructions of the mind...There might be perfect moments, cf Lou Reed "Perfect Day"

Panos Koutras


Would you like to make a porn film?
Only in case I would take part in! Even a secondary role. Otherwise it's unbearably boring to bother with actors who are sexual.


Have you ever had an erotic internet hookup?
Yes. The previous most important relationship I had was done over the Internet. We met on gaydar.


What is missing from the local gay scene?
Only one thing: awareness and political position! And a little bit more good taste would definetely not hurt!

On the Silver Couch : Ivan Maria Vele

-In 140 characters describe me your identity..
I am a vast multitude of identities.Obsessive dreamer and sensually pragmatic. I am only scared of boredom while I don't believe in death.


-Do u agree the empire of the internet is more superior, humane and
"real" than any other physical authority?

I never obeyed to any authority-family, state, church- while I believe the web is somehow a superior organic force dominated by US- the users/contributors. corporate forces are trying to kill the net by regulating it with repressive laws. in some cases the lack of electronic freedom=lack of democracy. indeed the net is also changing lifestyle. Arts and fashion are available to all while the punk ethics of d.i.y. has finally prevailed. would you have believed that in 1977? The future is no future!


- What about the "empire" of Berlusconi.. Italy?

I left Italy in 1994. I couldn't accept Mr B, the former fascists and the Lega Nord -suddenly in power.This dangerous lobby of "piduisti-mafiosi-clowns" has procured italians an heavy "ethical damage". They promised a fake blue dream of renaissance and what we've got is only a squallid kingdom of corruption. it is indeed very difficult to contrast these criminals but sooner or later our collective consciousness will prove to be stronger then their lies.the way forward is cultural dissemination. it is through the application of severe cultural paradigm shifts that we will prevail.

-Do you have a role model?

I don’t believe I really have one... I mean, people are so complicated to be considered models of any kind! I think that what inspires me is an amalgam of people’s practices rather than individual personalities.

- The theme of identity is an issue in question in our post-internet era. Do you have an alter ego?

I had to think a little bit more about that one, but again, maybe not? It seems that I don’t even have an online alter ego: I’m as shy online as I’m in real life and I have never created a proper avatar for any online virtual community!
