3 137 continues the series of events After the Explosion… you Hear the Light which started on December 2016 about art during the decade of 1970 in Greece and opens the space to present posters, books and archival material of the time. On that note, we create a publication, an imprint of the research carried out during meetings, discussions and actions, aspiring to a re-interpretation of findings, in collaboration with Paraguay Press, based in Paris.
Every Monday during April and May the space will be open to the public introducing photos, documents, video and memorabilia from a visit to the Greek 70’s. The archival material has been collected over the last year from artists of the time, art historians, friends and ISET Institute of Contemporary Art and Deste Foundation Archive.
In the aftermath of May ’68 and the ideological and political debates that defined “Metapolitefsi”, the art of the 1970s addressed major historical and social events of its time, but also posed questions regarding the form of art, institutional critique and art’s perception by the public.
After the explosion…you hear the light constitutes an attempt to understand the events and imperatives of an era which stimulated artistic explorations and actions, but also to reflect on the particular identity of artists from this period and the issues they raised for the first time in our country through their works; to consider their affinities with the present and examine their perspectives and the answers they gave to questions and hypotheses that, half a century large, remain unsettled, relevant to artistic practices and motivate younger artists. With the support of NEON.
