4 - 8 October 2017

Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) in the building complex of the Polytechnion, Prevelakis Hall

To see the full five-day program visit this link.

The research project Learning from documenta organizes a five-day program of events from October 4th until October 8th 2017 at the Athens School of Fine Arts (Prevelaki Hall, 42 Patision str). The aim of the event is to assess the research carried out by the Learning from documenta team so far, and to promote themes that arose throughout the staging of the exhibition and remain topical after its completion. The program is organized in two parts: the morning session includes workshops open to a limited number of participants; the evening session is open to anyone interested in participating in a variety of discussions between academics, artists and curators revolving around topics such as the relationships between international and local art institutions, their role in the shaping of cultural policies, the city as a source of inspiration and object of curating practices, ethnographic and community projects between art and anthropology, the reaction or rejection of documenta 14’s desire “to learn from Athens”, the interest in ancient and contemporary ruins from the international art scene, current approaches to and reworkings of the queer.


The closing event of the Learning from documenta research project is co-ordinated by an organizing committee consisting of:

- Apostolos Lampropoulos | literary & cultural theorist; University Bordeaux Montaigne
- Elpida Rikou | anthropologist, visual artist; Athens School of Fine Arts
- Eleana Yalouri | anthropologist, archaeologist; Panteion University

Special thanks

The five-day October event has the kind support of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, the Costopoulos Foundation and the Norwegian Institute at Athens, the Netherlands Institute at Athens and the British School at Athens.

About Learning from documenta

Learning from documenta is a two-year, independent research project situated between anthropology and art and brings together researchers from several other fields of interest. Learning from documenta critically engages with the presence, impact and aftermath of documenta 14 in Athens, with reference to other artistic, economic and sociopolitical developments in Greece and internationally. This research project includes anthropological research through participant observation focused on documenta 14; artistic interventions; academic collaboration locally and internationally; a platform where the research is being made accessible through the media.

It is supported academically by the department of Anthropology and the Laboratory of Anthropological Research of Panteion University and the Athens School of Fine Arts.
