At a time when the financial crisis in Greece and elsewhere is reaching new heights, the 4th Athens Biennale (AB4) cannot but respond to this bleak situation through a pertinent question: Now what?
In response to the current social and economic conditions, this year's Biennale will set out to explore creative alternatives to a state of bankruptcy by setting in motion a collaborative process in producing an exhibition.
Entitled AGORA, the exhibition will take place in an emblematic building, the former Athens Stock Exchange, and will be organised and curated by a nameless and ephemeral group of artists, curators, theorists and practitioners in the creative industries.
Bruce Gilbert & BAW, Neil Cummings, Dashndem, Pil & Galia Kollectiv, Peter Watkins and Sally Potter are among the British artists who will be taking part in this year's Biennale.
AGORA will be articulated through a series of performances, round-table discussions, film screenings, workshops and educational programmes.
