Thessaloniki, Greece

ARTISTS: Flaka Haliti, Lana Čmajčanin, Att Poomtangon, Armando Lulaj, Karmelo Bermejo, Jens Haaning

Curated by Adela Demetja 

The exhibition will also be hosted at the building of the Dorms. It focuses on the presentation of works developed by artists socially and politically sensitive to the current conditions that they are experiencing.

The curator notes that: “Related to the topic of this year’s Action Field Kodra Festival, in the exhibition The aesthetics of the small act, will be included art projects that were initiated as small individual political and social actions. This projects and artworks are relevant not only from the ethical and social impact but at the same time they function as an autonomous work of art inside the aesthetical system. Many of the artists coming from Southeast Europe countries since the 90s, have been producing projects and art works that were understood and valuated only from their social and political engagement. An analysis about the aesthetical values and their importance inside the institute of art, didn’t often take place…”

Through Demetja’s exhibition, the limits between the autonomy of art, the aesthetic value and the moral or social standards of a politically engaged artistic gesture are challenged, called upon and decomposed.
