Curated, imagined and practiced collectively by artists, curators and scholars, OCCUPY#2 attempts to “occupy" an institutional space, the French Embassy in Athens, so as to overcome various hierarchies and formulate a space where aesthetic politics could be performed.

 

The panel focuses on collective authorship and caregiving in cultural practice by inviting the “Care Collective,” institutional curators, scholars, and the contributor of the publication “Institution as Praxis” so as to explore the ways that the performance of care can contribute to the expansion of institutional, and non-institutional collaborative practice.
