There has been an international discourse about the relationship among artists, curators, art-historians and the audience. This phenomenon, is a consequence of the huge expansion of the role of the curator in the formulation of a dialogue regarding arts in the social sphere. It is generally admitted, that despite some differences, there is a common condition that artists-curators and curators share: the catholic involvement in the process of making an exhibition which covers and demands many skills. The transformation of the artist-curator to actually a self-entrepreneur happened silently through the years and resulted to a general pre-conception of the artist- curator as a professional individual in the art-world. The guest speakers belong to a generation which activated the contemporary art scene in Greece foremost following their personal motivation to act and express themselves.
The aim is not to make a cartography of the curatorial practices in Greece but to emphasize on par- ticular times, places and gestures.
