main programme


Curators: Paolo Colombo, Mahita El Bacha Urieta, Marina Fokidis


Assistant Curators: Domna Gounari, Anna Mykoniati (SMCA)

International Advisory Committee: Catherine David, Art-Historian, Curator, Maria Rosa Girace Pieralisi, Director of the Italian Institute in Thessaloniki, Jannis Kounellis, Artist, Jessica Morgan, Curator of Contemporary Art, Denys Zacharopoulos, Art-Historian, Curator.

In the current climate of gathering instability that holds great promise, as well as danger, the title A Rock and a Hard Place resonates powerfully. It captures the sense of fragility and jeopardy that looms over the wider politics of the Mediterranean and the psychology of the individual. Affected by a sense of impending danger and “Hamletic” doubt, contemporary artists produce work that is often characterised by a defensive, ironic stance.

The main programme of the 3rd Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art derives its inspiration from the city, as a metaphor of the powerful multicultural character of its past history. Each and every one of the biennale venues (5 historical monuments and 5 museums) constitutes an episode of the all-embracing narrative. These episodes are inspired both by the former and the current use of these buildings, by the past and contemporary contribution to the social life and political game of the city, and the artists and the works hosted have been chosen within this particular framework. Therefore, the visitors of the exhibitions will be walking around the city and at the same time will be playing a part in its life and history.

Architect:Andreas Angelidakis.

A sequence of artistic events adjoined the main programme , such as the presentation of the dOCUMENTA (13) Notebook series “100 Notes – 100 Thoughts”. Chus Martínez, dOCUMENTA (13) Head of Department, and Member of Core Agent Group, presented the first 17 Notebooks from the series “100 Notes – 100 Thoughts” followed by a conversation with Yiannis Stavrakakis, Professor of the School of Political Science of AUTH, with the curator Marina Fokidis as coordinator.


Coordination of the main programme venues by the curators of SMCA: John Bolis, Domna Gounari, Areti Leopoulou, Theodore Markoglou,Katerina Mavromichali, Anna Mykoniati, Eirini Papakonstantinou, Maria Tsantsanoglou, Syrago Tsiara.
