 Press Release

After the 7 weeks of AS ONE, the project can be justifiably characterized as a living laboratory dedicated to performance art, while NEON+MAI, who perceived and organized it, succeeded their purpose to promote performance art and Greek performers to the public.
AS ONE is considered the largest project for performance art in Greece and one of the largest in Europe.

Almost 50.000 people visited the Benaki Museum, mainly young people, full of passion for new experiences.
About 9.500 people felt the need to describe what they experienced and write down their impressions on the AS ONE visitor’s book.
In total, 2.680 hours of performance were realized by 29 artists who were surpassing the limits of their minds and bodies for 8 hours a day.
26 talks & 16 workshops by 29 artists and people related to different cultural sections took place, about the history of performance and its relation to other forms of art.

150 people collaborated for 2 months, filling every day the Benaki Museum with their energy.
AS ONE required 2,5 months of preparation.
NEON+MAI teams reviewed 320 artists’ applications in order to conclude to 29 of them and 30 projects.

The publicity of the project was relevant to its importance in Greece as well as internationally, with descriptions and hands on editors’ experiences. The interest of international press to cover the project was high with at least 10 extensive articles by international press such as The New York Times, Bloomberg, CNN Style, NZZ Am Sonntag, Forbes.com, Art Monthly, ArtNet, ArtInfo, Wallpaper* online, Calvert Journal. In Greece, newspapers, sites and magazines covered AS ONE with more than 600 articles.
