The unprecedented changes brought about by the 2020 global pandemic changed the art world and the very fabric of social and economic life. This gave birth to the idea of creating a prototype art-dictionary, an archive of video interviews. Each entity hosts 20 Artists from Greece and Austria who present their artwork and reflect on the current conditions. What are the difficulties they face, how will these issues evolve in the future.
The 2020 Interviews focus on the issues of social inclusion, restriction, and re-evaluation of art and the role of the artist in society.
Artists interviewed for 2020: Francis Ruyter, Olga Georgieva, Jeremias Altmann, Peter Fritzenwallner, Isidora Krstic, Julian Palacz, Olivier Hölzl, Karin Maria Pfeiffer, Veronika Schubert, Vasilis Galanis, Babis Karalis, Kostas Lales, Natalia Manta, Luiza Margan, Dimosthenis Bogiatzis, Katerina Botsari, Amo Soy, Kleopatra Tsali, Sotiris Fokeas, Andreas Voussouras.
An initiative by: CHEAPART (Athens), Gallerie Artmark (Vienna), ARTmART
The artists and interviews are curated and directed by:
Georg Georgakopoulos, Fotini Kapiris, Johannes Haller, Christian Rupp.
