AthenSYN II: GOING VIRAL

Contemporary Greek Art in Berlin

January 21 – March 3, 2022

AthenSYN II: GOING VIRAL Exhibition and Symposium for Contemporary Greek Art in Berlin presents 14 artistic positions of the generation Y in the newly established STEINZEIT Gallery in Berlin Kreuzberg. The participating artists are raising questions that concern our future coexistence.

In AthenSYN II: GOING VIRAL, AthenSYN presents paintings, videos, sculptures and installations created by young Greek artists against their background experience between the socio-economic crisis of 2009 and the current Covid-19 Pandemic. All of them have been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS. Significantly, the contemporary Greek art is positioned between poles such as the global South and North, lack of economic resources and prosperity, political center and periphery, traditionalism and innovation.

The exhibition, curated by Sotirios Bahtsetzis and Katja Ehrhardt, opens with a two-day hybrid symposium hosting artists, theorists and activists from Greece and Germany on sustainability, self-organization and alternative economies with workshops, discussions and film screenings.
