The Association Phenomenon and the Kerenidis Pepe Collection are pleased to announce the third edition of Phenomenon, the biennial project for contemporary art held in the Aegean island of Anafi, Greece, which will take place between 1-14 July 2019. Phenomenon 3 will include a residency with a series of performances, lectures, video screenings and other events (1-14 July) and an exhibition in outdoor and indoor spaces throughout the island (opening 6 July, until 14 July).
For its third edition, Phenomenon will investigate the role of art in times of political urgency. By questioning singular points of view and naturalized concepts, art offers new ways of imagining a collective life, producing forms of social engagement, counteracting authoritarian and populist ideologies. We will be looking for strategies through art that enable encounters of differential forces and interests, circumvent constructed binary oppositions and realize the creative and political potential of the unstable in-between.
INVITEES: Eva Barto, Jason Dodge, David Horvitz, Florence Jung, Stelios Kallinikou, Jochen Lempert, Eileen Myles, Deimantas Narkevičius, Vittorio Santoro, Paky Vlassopoulou
