11 visual artists in the center of Athens, exhibits the “F is for Football” and explores football as a social and cultural phenomenon, with all the contradictions and ambiguities that intrinsically incorporates both temporal and today, the era of globalization. A phenomenon, that seems even times have changed, remains unchanged.
Of course we will watch the football matches! In Skouze3 we will show all World Cup matches every day to create a dialectical relationship between the sport itself and the exhibition, adding a festive character that is so fitting with the same spirit of football society.
Through a selection of old and new works (photographs , installations, paintings , video), the participants have commented critically the modern football, the homo footballus, and also other issues associated with football: from the politics of the identity, propaganda and violence, to issues of space, architecture and the future states of football.
