Synapse I: Rethinking Institutions

Over the course of OMONOIA‘s duration, it hosts several events or synapses. The first one, taking place on 18 and 19 November 2015, aims “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.”

On 18 November 2015, BAK artistic director Maria Hlavajova contributes to the second panel, Session II: Rethinking Institutions. “The Athens Biennale acts both as host organisation and mediator between artists, cultural producers, and local initiatives and institutional space where notions of self-organisation, cooperation, sustainability, and grassroots democracy will be experimented. The aim is to develop new institutional configurations and alliances between cultural producers and art institutions across Europe.”

The speakers in this session are: Max Andrews & Mariana Cánepa Luna, Maria Hlavajova, Leo Panitch, Emily Pethick, Hilary Wainwright, and Amalia Zepou (moderator).
