Artists in Athens - City of Crisis


Thanks to its vitality, the art scene in Athens, in the face of the economic and political crisis, is met with increased attention by media and trade press. Street art occupies a special place in this. Free expression finds its way as the walls of buildings become covered with a deluge of political statements.
The research and exhibition project “Artists in Athens – City of Crisis” poses questions about the connection between the crisis and artistic production in Greece. 14 contemporary artists who work in Athens, express their artistic development in the midst of the greek crisis, as well as its impact on their personal life and artistic creativity.
The exhibition, a combination of social research and photographic documentation, presents the photographic works of contemporary artists: five women and nine men aged from 24 to 72 years, express engaged in a number of different art forms ranging from “apolitical” to explicitly political (figurative and abstract painting, street art, sculpture, installations and photographic art).
