15 April 2017: 6th Athens Biennale: “Resurrection with Documena", by Documena (a series of actions, with the participation of Despina Sevasti (DAI, 2017) and others)
Documena would like to invite you to an extravaganza of biblical proportions. Everybody’s favourite online presence at a time of a profound crisis of values, the land of the palingenetic queer, becomes flesh and bones this Holy Saturday towards Easter Sunday aiming at the exaltation of the faithful towards an incorporeal Pnyx. With the power of the Delta!

* Documena (Δοκούμενα) is a project that seeks to respond to how contemporary art production engages with the intense European crisis. At the current historical shifting point, moving from a time of middle-class certainties to one of neo-patriotic mobilization of frustrated social strata, we focus on motifs of neoconservative regression or modes of reactionary speech, that seem to inform artistic radicalism and its global institutional mediations. As a grotesque conceptual loan from ancient greek, we employ the term “Δοκούμενα”: “the perceptions that function as a given – those things we believe in or we hope for.
