Beneath the surface, Athens is changing in unprecedented ways.
und. Athens is a new art-guide that seeks to map, record and promote the alternative art scene of Athens today. Focusing on contemporary art by young and emerging artists based in the city, this independent double publication offers a comprehensive directory of artist-run spaces, artist studios, galleries, museums and institutions in Athens, presented alongside local insights about each neighbourhood, where to eat and which streets are worth exploring.
The first city guide of its kind in Greece, und. Athens comes as a printed, foldable map available for sale at select bookstores, shops and other locations. This map is the perfect companion for art-curious urban explorers to discover a city thatʼs changing rapidly and in ways that cannot be immediately grasped: shifting demographics, unique architectural and urban-planning conditions, a shaky political landscape—and the tired adage of an indefinite crisis screeching in the background—are shaping the city every day in a myriad ways, and particularly the way local artists think and work.
From the visual arts and street art to performance and creative writing, und. Athens turns the spotlight on alternative art spaces and projects, in an attempt to reassemble a city that is broken as much as it is in flux.
