"No country for young men" Contemporary Greek Art in Times of Crisis @ Bozar Centre of Fine Arts / Brussels

Pavlos Fysakis Photography
This exhibition brings together work by 30 leading contemporary Greek artists whose work addresses the impact of the economic crisis on their country. Their work transcends the everyday coverage of political and economic developments and offers an insightful look at what is going on in Greece today. The focus, however, is not only restricted to the negative effects: the exhibition also looks at the opportunities the crisis offers for a reinvention of the country.

Participating artists: Loukia Alavanou / Manolis Anastasakos & Alexandros Vasmoulakis / Bill Balaskas / Depression Era / Eirene Efstathiou / Stelios Faitakis / Marina Gioti / Alexandros Georgiou / Philippe Grammaticopoulos / Guerrilla Optimists / Michalis G. Kallimopoulos / Dionisis Kavallieratos / Panos Kokkinias / Alkis Konstantinidis / Zissis Kotionis / Marinos Koutsomichalis, Afroditi Psarra & Maria Varela / Nicolas Kozakis & Raoul Vaneigem / Nikos Navridis / Angelos Papadimitriou / Maria Papadimitriou / Antonis Pittas / Poka-Yio / Stefania Strouza / Lina Theodorou / Panos Tsagaris / Kostas Tsolis / Dimitris Tsoumplekas / Chrisa Valsamaki / Kostis Velonis / Eirini Vourloumis / Zafos Xagoraris / Yorgos Zois

BOZAR and the Atelier Bouwmeester are also welcoming a satellite project by Depression Era, a collective of photographers, artists, researchers, writers, architects, journalists and curators formed in 2012, recording the Greek crisis through images and texts. The Depression Era project exhibition takes place at the Atelier Bouwmeester, just across the street from BOZAR in 54-59 Galerie Ravenstein, and will be the first international presentation of the collective outside Greece.
