Future Climates is a platform founded by Antonia Alampi and iLiana Fokianaki with the objective to shape the forecast of institutional climates by addressing the precarious conditions of individual workers and small-scale organizations of contemporary culture. At its core lies the urgency to imagine and implement new sustainable economies in response to the changing weather that affects labour rights, work ethics and funding methods.
Future Climates will launch at State of Concept with The School of Redistribution, a three-month long exhibition, research and public program: all dressed as a school. The project is conceived as a dialogue across contexts, methodologies and practices, aiming to investigate the economic conditions that determine and define the work of small-scale organizations and independent workers of contemporary culture in Athens, with a group of researchers/participants selected via an open call. It will revolve around one central question: how to transform the increasingly precarious existence of small-scale organizations and independent art workers into a more sustainable one, both in terms of economy and work ethics?
The research program includes visits to local institutions, lectures by international and Greek independent and institutionally affiliated art workers, workshops, writing and an ongoing public program.
The School of Redistribution opens on April 5, with an ongoing action by Alexandra Pirici followed by presentations and discussion with Olav Velthuis, Prosorini Akadimia Tehnon Athens, Emily Pethick, Victoria Ivanova, Maria Lind, Mohammed Salemy, Julieta Aranda and Anton Vidokle. The space of the School is designed by Studio Miessen with the title Χάιτερ μπις Βόλκικ – Heiter bis Wolkig (sunny with cloudy intervals). Supported by NEON.
