The Athens Underground 1964-1983

On June 29, CAMP presents the opening of the first part of the major exhibition, “Underground in Athens -part one1964-1983. The goal here is to present the full scale of an important social event in Athens, during the 60s, 70s and early 80s. From the proto-beatnick tendencies of Pali magazine up to Punk nihilism and the gradual radicalization and call to violence, two decades later. from the countless publications of the 70s and 80s that circulated around Exarheia square to psychedelic and underground tendencies found among mainstream (or not so mainstream) art galleries at the time. From hallucinatory and transgressive film experiments to interchanges between music and the visual arts. This exhibition is going to present the overall social, cultural and political climate of that era -shockingly similar to ours. For that purpose historical overview is being expanded by a dialogue with a new art scene which, in many ways, can be interpreted as a “new underground”.
The second part of the exhibition titled “Underground in Athens -part two 1984-2012 explores artistic cases from these equally turbulent years. During the 3-month duration of this 2-part exhibition a series of parallel events such as talk shows, discussions, projections and music concerts will take place at the CAMP. A major edition will be published at the occasion of the exhibition and be presented at both the opening and a separate event.
