Athens City Art Life

During periods of crisis, it is interesting to observe the mutation of artistic production, the political and economic instability and above all the great social changes during a crisis period. For the artists their is an increased perception towards the world and to images, they just offer more, their geniality, their creativity have a special development and instill an outburst of energy. The market does not have any special requirement; the absence of established archetypes promotes creativity, they are no immutable standard requests, they are no commitments. The artist does not create to sell or – at least – he does not have any pledge. No imitating steady models, Athens is innovation. The freedom that exists in the everyday life in Greece, is allowing is allowing the parties to move and act without burocratic obstacles, producing a rise of new activities, events and initiatives.
