Art Athina, like other Art Fairs, has a number of side-shows such as Platforms Project, but also “Collecting Images of the Sensible, contemporary artworks from Turkey’s collectors” and the exhibition which Artemis Potamianou curated with highlights from the Art-Fair. Further more there are a number of Talks in which collectives, initiatives, events etc. can present themselves to an interested audience. Here you can find a choice from all that, you will find the themes that are relevant in this region all over the programme:
The important Greek collector D. Daskalopoulos presents his collection at the Fair by showing one work by the famous Swiss artist Pippilotti Rist: Super Objectiv a collage of image and sound that make one doze off into another world.
Then Greece is close to Turkey and in spite of the century long sensitivities between the two countries the artworld is convinced of the necessity of coörporation. The exhibition with contemporary artworks from Turkish collections whis was curated by Beral Madra and Saliha Yavuzon is a nice addition to the fair with iteresting works from international and Turkish artists, I will limit myself to some examples from the last in spite of the intention of the curators.

Groepstentoonstelling in Zürich met vleermuizen:
En een interview met Pippilotti Rist over de sluiting van haar installatie in Venetie:
“ I am looking for heaven on earth, artistically speaking. I want to propose a positive concept that poses an undogmatic alternative to hierarchical structures, and I want to celebrate liberation. “
