Art Exhibition Prometheus 2.0 at Michael Cacoyannis Foundation, Athens Greece

"Beginning with fire, as the archetypal symbol of civilization, the artists approach the subject matter, in search of contemporary, promethean figures and symbols of the Digital Era. The works present issues of revolution, liberation, self-punishment and self-destruction, knowledge and information overload.
Nicole Leventi,
art historian (from the exhibition catalogue)

Tragedy 2.0_Athens 2018. The research and cultural Program Tragedy 2.0 constitutes the first international collective exploration of the paradoxical encounter between Ancient Greek Tragedy and the Digital Era.

35 artists are taking part in the exhibition Prometheus 2.0 with works including paintings, photography, sculptures, installations, mixed media, and video art. Their approaches are such as: How does poetry meet technology? Is the development of techno-science liberating or limiting? Does high speed sharing of information assist in better communication and understanding? Is there a modern day Prometheus? If so, how would he impart knowledge and light? Is he bound? By who?
