Episode 5: Will Athens Become the New Art Capital of Europe?
What is happening in Athens after the political and cultural transformations of the past decade—the financial crisis, the increased number of refugees seeking shelter in Europe, and the 2017 edition of Documenta and the artists who moved to the Greek capital, attracted by its affordability and warmth? Are skeptics right when they predict the city’s resurgence will be short-lived? Bringing together artists, curators and galleries important to its cultural life, Will Athens Become the New Art Capital of Europe? inquires upon the present and future states of the city.
