Born in the 80s (from 1979 to 1990) these 34 new artists and the members of 3 artistic groups have just completed their studies and started to make their first steps in Greece but also in international art centers such as London, Berlin, Vienna, Cologne, Amsterdam, Manchester.”
More than 60 works are on displayed (installations, drawings, video, performance, sound installations, paintings), out of which 27 are works made especially for this exhibition…….
Representatives of a generation shaped by (and from) the intangible digital technology, they are brought up with the new consciousness of co-creation, collaboration, diffusion of knowledge and information. They create collective and participatory communities; explore contemporary issues related to the new economy and production processes, labor, sustainability, autonomy and alternative ways of living.
