Platforms Project @ Art-Athina 2014

The objective of the project is to map artistic action as it is produced in the context of collective initiatives by artists who decide to join forces in seeking answers to artistic questions by creating the so-called platforms.

The project will help promote the various artists’ groups, collectives, platforms and independent art spaces of a non-commercial (non-profit) orientation which operate in unconventional ways, in Greece as well as abroad, managing to establish unexpected debates on art.

Based on the “unity is strength” principle, the platforms have secured their own place on the international art arena without antagonizing the environment they are called upon to serve.

Platforms Project @ Art-Athina 2013 presented 45 platforms – artists’ initiatives from 16 countries with more than 500 artists while Platforms Project @ Art-Athina 2014 presents 47 very important  platforms – artists’ initiatives from 18 countries creating new dialogues and collaborations between platforms.

The artist-run platforms-groups are given the opportunity to present an art project at a specific site—booth—and thus provide a picture of the independent art scene.

The project provides opportunities for new networks between the Greek and the international scene, at the same time creating new visions, new contexts and new opportunities for artists.
