Following on the first international Conference of the ΑΑΟ project: Ethics / Aesthetics, held at the Athens School of Fine Arts, the six Academic Workshops currently under way and Athens Here and Now with interactive works in downtown Athens, the ΑΑΟ project organizes a second international Conference at the Benaki Museum, Pireos St Annex.

The first conference explored ethics and aesthetics as a broader platform in terms of its theoretical foundation and the spatial translations of this relationship in the new spatial and curatorial practices, in artworks and in architectural, urban and topological applications.


The second Conference, held on June 6 & 7, 2011 at the amphitheater of the  Benaki Museum, Pireos St Annex, presents the projects of the participants in the main exhibition, the inventive strategies they adopted and their works’ media and objectives in an attempt to assess today’s pressing social and ecological needs and the ways they are addressed.

Moderator: Lina Stergiou, Concept – Curator at large AAO project

The AΑO project provides no certainties. On the contrary, its principles call upon us to a collective engagement so as to contribute to the resolution of our crucial, challenging problems and urge us to go from idle contemplation to thinking through synergy. All actions are based on a model of expanded collaboration within a network of professionals, public and private bodies, educational institutions and museums.
