Crisis is a Greek Word

Don`t take the title wrong! 🙂
My last visit to Athens brought me to Technopolis (Gazi). This places hosts a lot of  interesting musical event, artistic exhibitions and other non-mainstream events. This time it was my pleasure to visit a new exhibition “Crisis is a Greek Word”. The idea behind it is very positive:

«Crisis is a Greek word» is the title of the Greek Designers global initiative to describe Greece in the times of Crisis. The ongoing depression that affects more countries everyday has inspired 48 top Greek Visual Communication Designers, with more than 1,240 international and national distinctions, to participate for the first time at a common exhibition, its sole aim being to convey a message of creativity to the World.

At first I found many art pieces quite depressive, but after getting to know more about the idea behind each of them, I thought: “It`s actually rather inspiring!”.

The exhibits let you see another side of crisis as such. They bring your attention to small details, ideas, words, facts.. My brightest memory after stepping out of that room was “Wow, Crisis is not bad. It`s a change. Evolution. The whole concept of Europe and Crisis is perceived by masses from a twisted angle.” Got me thinking, you know.

In addition I`m was happy to see so many talented Greek artists eager to change if not the world, then Greece!
