“The construction of situations begin on the ruins of the modern spectacle” Guy Debord
IFAC Athina is a new situation and praxis point for ideas which aim to bridge the divide between various cultural hot spots and the commercial centers of power. We are an extended global conceptual performance which calls into question our collective environment as a means to define the early 21st century. Artists today continue to respond through emergent behaviors as our data bodies float freely across borders, translate language, and bypass cultural differences in order to seek wisdom from the crowd through voluntary exchanges in democratic forums. We are not a commercial post-internet art gallery. We are anonymous invisible hands set to build a vital new global agora. IFAC Athina will present a dynamic program of local and international artists and organizers which seek to engage the cultural landscape of Athens, the Mediterranean region, and beyond.
Galaxia 11 Street in Neos Kosmos will be our European headquarters and look forward to becoming an established and committed part of the arts community in Athens in the years to come. We will be announcing our full program for the 2016-2017 season in January which will focus on new artforms, video and collective projects in both Athens and New York City.
