Press: Despina Zefkili about Athens in Global Art Discourse

Fanis Kafantaris, Speleo, installation view. Bageion, Athens Biennale OMONOIA_SchoolAthens-1


In her dossier "The School of Athens" for ART PAPERS, Despina Zefkili is tracing two stereotypical images of contemporary Athens found in global art discourse: While one builds on the image of a frozen city ("where ancient ruins meet the ruins of neoliberalism"), the other one, painting the city "as a 'workshop' of creative energy in the wake of its debt crisis" is one the Temporary Academy of Arts (PAT) was problematizing throughout the series of "Soft Power Lectures"! Worth a read!
