3rd Athens Biennale 2011 MONODROME
The 3rd Athens Biennale 2011 is a double project in the form of an international exhibition and a feature film. MONODROME revolves around an unlikely encounter: The Little Prince meets Walter Benjamin. This intentionally peculiar coupling of the two figures acts as the ground onto which the ongoing worldwide sociopolitical and financial upheaval will be examined, through a narrative that will address humanity in a universal and poetic manner. Athens, and Greece for that matter, has been the epicenter of a social and economical earthquake whose consequences are becoming stronger: How could one reflect on this situation which seems to exhibit characteristics that make it global rather than national or local in nature? Is what has been rather facilely referred to as the “Greek example” a significant turning point in history..? More details @ www.athensbiennial.com.
Until 11th of December @ Theatre Square / Diplareios School / Eleftherias Park / ARTS CENTRE / El. Venizelos Museum.
