R,C appeared in conjunction with the exhibition RHYTHM, CITIZEN by Maria Toumazou. It is the third in a series of small volumes of correspondence, responses, and conversations, which accompanies the exhibition program of Grazer Kunstverein.

R,C summons three voices: On The Solitary Crossing Of Impassable Passages, a statement by Koula Savvidou, written on the occasion of her eponymous exhibition at Diaspro Art Center, Nicosia, in 1995; EXHAUST, a selection of lyrics written by ‘Tasos Lamnisos / x.ypno for EE&ET (2021), a 10-track album by steliosilchuk & x.ypno; and a selection of 26 photographs taken by Maria Toumazou between 2021 and 2022.
