4th Athens Biennale 2013

With the multi-collective programme of AGORA and aiming to explore creative alternatives and useful ideas, here comes the 4th Athens Biennale from September 29, 2013 to December 1, 2013.

At a time when the financial crisis in Greece and elsewhere is reaching a highpoint, the 4th Athens Biennale (AB4) cannot but respond to this bleak situation through a pertinent question: Now what?

Titled AGORA, the exhibition proposed by AB4 (as an answer to this question) will take place in an emblematic building, the former Athens Stock Exchange (main venue of AB4) by a nameless and ephemeral group of artists, curators, theorists and practitioners in the creative industries. AGORA is thus a collective experiment, the result of a process of fermentation between professionals from different backgrounds.

AB4 proposes AGORA not only as a place of exchange and interaction, but also as an ideal setting for critique and a radical re-orientation in thinking. As a contested space where multiple theses and doctrines emerge, this AGORA cannot be taken for granted: it aims for pleasure and purpose; it opts for the carnivalesque and the ambiguous, for the significant as much as the insignificant.

AGORA is formulated through a succession of objects, collaborative events, performances, roundtable discussions, film screenings, workshops and educational programmes.

In AGORA, works and theses evoke that which is urgently needed at this particular moment: an unearthing of timely attitudes, a re-evaluation of artistic and lifetime strategies, a deconstruction of dominant myths in order to discover new, functional approaches and attitudes.
