Hollow Airport Museum, the alternative School established several years ago by Nicos Charalambidis at the abandoned Nicosia’s airport, bringing the Green Line to life, presents in a special booth at ART ATHINA 16-19 May 2013, a selection from the group of important artists who will participate in an extensive series of international exhibitions at a number of Museums, Galleries and other alternative exhibition venues under the curatorial of Orlando Britto Jinorio and co-curated by Maria Stathis and Sotiris Bahtsetzis. Multilevel events lasting two years, will take place within the framework of the extended
project: www.whitehousebiennial.com under the general title: Exercises on Democracy.
Artists like Khaled Hourani (Palestine),
Moataz Nasr (EG), Helidon Gjergji (USA),
Sandra Ramos (Cuba), Ilona Nemeth (Slovakia),
Baptiste Debombourg (France),
Txuspo Poyo (Spain), Juraj Dudas ( Slovakia),

are only a few of the headline participants
in the exhibitions.
Noteworthy is that at the ART ATHINA booth works of Pablo Picasso will be presented,
the artist whose name and oeuvre are associated more than anyone else with Democracy and the struggles against dictatorship. The works, courtesy of the the Nakagawa Collection in Tokyo, will accompany the work Picasso in Palestine by Khaled Hourani that received the best reviews at the recent Documenta in Kassel.
On this first cycle of exhibitions for the next two years, Nicos Charalambidis gives the general title "Exercises on Democracy" inviting the artists to create works having in mind the decline of democratic values as it is linked to the global economic recession of our days. The exhibitions after ART ATHINA, 25 of May - 10 July 2013, will continue at the Open Case 303, a new three-stores exhibition space on Kifisias Avenue 303, inaugurating the space. A selection of Greek artists also will participate who work along a team spirit, an essential element of political art, such as Joanna Pantazopoulou, Artemis Potamianou, Nikos Larios,
Dionisis Christofilogiannis, Nikos Papadatos, etc...
