The participants of this panel share a common element: they moved to Athens in an era where the financial and social crisis in Greece were at the pick. In this era of precarious conditions, they founded new project spaces as Athens now is considered to be one of the top destinations for new opportunities for the art production. What are the reasons to open a space now in Athens when the majority of the local art spaces try to be sustainable? How do these new spaces formulate their program and how are they connected to the cultural field of Greece? What are the affiliations with the city, the artists, the curators, the institutions?
