Festival Miden has been invited to present a special program at Art:screen festival, Örebro, Sweden, 5-7 of October 2012. The program is entitled IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, BREAK GLASS and presents 11 notable contemporary artists and groups from Greece. Starting with an intangible surreal world, where in a strange happy (?) place a “magnificent beast is worshiped and exploited”, the program gradually leads us, through metaphors, symbols, artistic/fictional/historical references and subversions of existent realities, to one specific place: contemporary Greece.

Curated by Gioula Papadopoulou + Giorgos Dimitrakopoulos

Participant artists/groups:

NOMINT, Nikos Giavropoulos, Poly Kokkinia, Mary Zygouri, Gioula Papadopoulou, Theodoros Zafeiropoulos, Dimitris Tzamouranis, Andreas Savva, Giorgos Maraziotis, Bill Balaskas, Andreas Sitorengo
