KLARA KäLLSTRöM & THOBIAS FäLDT /// 25 LEMON TREES, NO GARDENERS         de | en

Greece is back in the headlines. Bankrupt, Grexit, bailout are discussed again. As in 2015, when Klara Källström and Tobias Fäldt photographed 25 Lemon Trees.

In the summer of 2015, Källström and Fäldt happened to travel along the decision making of the so called Trojka - the European Commission, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank, and the meetings that started off in Brussels on June 23rd, continued to Berlin and subsequently lead up to the bailout referendum held in Greece on July 5th.

The vantage point for 25 Lemon Trees, No Gardeners is a fake news story concocted by some of the major European news outlets. The headlines exclaimed that the Evangelismos Hospital in Athens had 45 employed gardeners but no garden and this came to be a perfect metaphor for the reasons behind the Greek economic crisis, and presumably Greek wastefulness. The truth of the matter however, was that the hospital indeed had no garden, but neither did it have any gardeners. Upon closer inspection, it did however have 25 lemon trees.

The referendum ended with a NO, but with some good old strong-arming the NO was turned in to a YES and austerity was implemented. Let´s see what the next round will bring.
