Every summer visual artists, musicians, craftsmen, architects and designers are invited. The summer programme is designed to encourage groups to work together on projects and to initiate collaborations that will continue beyond summer. In this way self-organized networks are stimulated and promoted.

Photoshooting by Tomas Eyzaguirre
Tomas Eyzaguirre took practices of fashion editorials, which he applied to photographs of pieces of fabric hung on simple structures. While his stay at the hermitage he built a sculpture that visualizes a mannequin while dressing up and used the sculpture as object for his photography.
Burial of things by Alex Chalmers
Alex Chalmers is interested in the history of his surroundings. So he came up with the idea to collect objects and materials from the island which are connected in some way to the collective memory. He made a time capsule by digging a hole and burying them. All participants will meet in 2023 at the hermitage again to excavate the time capsule.
Designing sleeping units together with Wolfram Sinapius and Theodoros Tzannetakis
In a week-long workshop the olive grove of the hermitage was measured and a 1:100 model was built.
Construction of a geodesic dome by Kosmas Nikolaou and Byron Kalomamas
Kosmas Nikolaou and Byron Kalomamas constructed a geodesic dome. They introduced this kind of simple and functional structure to the participants and suggested it as an idea for sleeping units that could be realized in the olive grove of the hermitage.
Reading Performance by Joel Mu
Joel Mu had just finished his first book when the summer programme took place. The book originated from a trip he and Andreas Sell took together in the spring of 2019 to Sykaminea, tracing multiple narratives and people, now woven into his reflections of this journey. Joel brought his text back to its origin.
Concert by Mytilenoise
Mytilenoise is the new music project by Leonidas Danezos and Tassos Magorical. In their music they combine samplers and drum machines operated manualy, creating illusion through rhythm-manipulation. Greek baglamas, live mixing and production.
Taking portraits by Agustin Farias
Agustin Farias created a super 8 film while his time at the hermitage. His focus was to catch not only the beginning of this new place, but also to reflect the atmosphere on the island.
Durational construction by Julie Loi
While being at the hermitage Julie built a portable heating device for small spaces. A kind of hybrid
J-shaped rocket stove technology and mass storage rocket stove, composed of metal elements and clay. She has never done something like this before, so her workshop was a learning process for everyone.
