Thessaloniki Center for Contemporary Art: 19th of January
through 28th of February
Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki, 9th of February through 17th of March
The exhibition rebuts, re-examines and rejects inequities and exemplifies the goals of
humanism and social justice. Global humanism and social justice share a common goal that
seeks to promote both individual and social right of fair access to opportunity and benefit;
and, to embrace equality as governing principle in all areas of modern life. In our current
era of crisis; wealth inequality, suppression of free speech, governmentally sanctioned
discrimination, religious intolerance, political corruption all stand as blockades to the goals
of humanism and social justice.
The artists featured in this exhibition come from diverse socio-cultural backgrounds and
have been chosen by the curators because their work expresses social justice.
