Athens Independents Art Index

supported by the Schwarz Foundation

Athens Independents Art Index is an initiative that highlights and maps independent project spaces and platforms throughout the city. Since the crisis, these spaces have been important motors driving contemporary art in Athens. Independent art initiatives in Athens gathered together to create a network of contemporary art organizations that represent a cross-section of the creative forces in Athens that are flourishing, reflecting and thinking about the city and providing an interface between the Greek cultural community and the international scene. Ranging from non-profit and artist-run spaces, to residencies, community networks and curatorial projects, these independent initiatives offer broad insight into contemporary artistic production in Athens today. The following initiatives will be active during and beyond documenta 14. A printed map with all spaces will be available at all d14 venues and other cultural institutions in the city. For further details & opening hours please check websites of the respective spaces below.
