Visual Dialogues 2012
until 10 February 2013 12:00-18:00 Plato's Academy Leisure Park
Visual Dialogues 2012 is a group exhibition of multimedia works of art, taking place at the Plato's Academy Leisure Park. The exhibition problematic is based on two main axes:
A. The financial, political and state crisis as a challenge for democracy and the arts
B. Social factors like unemployment, the risk of state bankruptcy and immigration as a motive for artistic action and reaction.
The Alexander S. Onassis Foundation Cultural Center Non-Profit Organization invited visual artists to create entirely new, original works, which engage with one of the show’s twin axes mentioned above. The ten works in the exhibition, all of which are on public display for the first time as part of the Visual Dialogues 2012, were produced using new media technologies (video art, projection of digital images, animation etc.), and are shown in self-contained architectural structures standing in the Park in the Plato’s Academy area (entrance at the corner of Tripoleos & Kratylou streets).
This arrangement will allow the visitors to wander through the park and discover for themselves the ten projections hosted inside ten kiosks, designed to fit in with their natural surroundings.


Curator: Marilena V. Karra, Head of Visual Arts Department, Alexander S. Onassis Foundation Cultural Center Non- Profit Organization

The project “Greek Cogitation Colloquia: Experiential Learning Programs” has been designed by the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation Cultural Center Non-Profit Organization and is implemented in collaboration with the National University of Athens, the Foundation of the Hellenic World and the Institution of Youth and Lifelong Learning. The project is co-financed by the European Social Fund and National funds through the Operational Programme Education and Lifelong Learning.
This project, focused on Education and Lifelong Learning for people of all ages, aspires to open up new avenues of thought on issues of global and diachronic interest through a wide range of experiential activities, focusing on the Greek way of thinking and the area of “Academy of Plato”. Leading thinkers, scholars, scientists, artists and intellectuals from around the world will participate in public debates, educational programs, workshops and experiential learning programs targeted to the Hellenism, the City and the Citizen.
