Athens Biennale: OMONOIA

  • Athens Biennale Athens Greece

ECF Director Katherine Watson will participate to the International Summit Synapse 1 in the Athens Biennale on 18 and 19 November. The first of a series of OMONOIA events running over the next two years, the aim of Synapse 1 is to consider the common ground between groups of scholars, activists, self-managed organisations, cultural producers and other civic subjects involved in urban practices of commoning, solidarity, urban welfare and participatory democracy. Katherine will moderate a session on "The Perfomative in the Political" which will look at relationships between aesthetics and politics –particularly at art and cultural production– and the role of artists and intellectuals in urban mobilisations and participatory democracy. You can find the detailed programme online.
