locus athens is an independent contemporary arts organization based in Athens run by Maria-Thalia Carras and Olga Hatzidaki.
locus athens’ program revolves around its interest in the public sphere: from forgotten spaces and public buildings, to small private institutions and interesting localities – in dialogue always with the transformational potential of contemporary art. Just some of the places that have been activated by locus athens in recent years are the Tzisdaraki mosque in central Athens, the cruise ship terminal in Piraeus port, schools, office buildings, Monastiraki square, the Doxiadis Schools and numerous anonymous sites around the city.
locus athens has consistently sought to comission new productions based on investigations into the historical, political and cultural complexities of Athens, Greece and the broader region. Its program includes exhibitions, talks, screenings, workshops, publications, children’s books, residencies and community projects.
