Inside & Outside the Onassis Stegi
New forms of art, hybrid performances and installations, unexpected encounters, atypical spaces: The Onassis Fast Forward Festival turns its critical eye to the contemporary urgencies, commissioning international and local artists to produce site-specific works at the Athens city-center. This year, the FFF explores the notion of the commons and the collaborative models of artistic creation and education.
How to live together when we come from different social and cultural backgrounds? How do we coexist in the contemporary metropolis? How can we interact, and how can we talk about things that are foreign to us, unfamiliar, different?
The 6th Onassis Fast Forward Festival once again disrupts our certainties about art and life, exploring the notion of the commons and of solidarity initiatives from several perspectives and fields of knowledge with the tools of art and culture. Hybrid performances, installations and video works, which arise from monthslong collaboration with experts and local communities, while also exploring atypical public and private spaces, are presented for two weeks in the heart of the city.
