Greece Gropers Foundation is a fictional institution and play authored by artists Jeuno JE Kim and Lasse Krog Møller. Greece Gropers, the fictive “founder” of the institution is an anagram of author Georges Perec, whose literary methods and games have structured the artists’ conceptual and working processes. Perec’s sociological approach in scrutinizing conventions, and highlighting the infraordinary in the everyday are some of the sensibilities adopted and adapted by the artists.

Jeuno JE Kim introduces the makers and the making of Greece Gropers Foundation. This is followed by a guided tour of the collections on display at Signal as part of the exhibition E as in Invisible, E as in Invincible, E as in Disappear: Dust Museum, The Museum of Bureaucratic Apparatus, Greece Gropers Publishing House, and The Silence Institute.
