Depression Era

Benaki Museum

The exhibition “Depression Era” depicts the urban and social landscape of the crisis. It is a mosaic of different narratives and ideas, a collective documentation of the traumatic transformation of the crisis, through images and texts. For the past three years, 36 artists, writers, architects, journalists, and researchers have been collaborating, actively engaging in political, social and aesthetic dialogue. The result has been the creation of an artistic “archive” constantly processing the reality of an era.
