“Once the world is over, what is left? If anything survives, what is it?”
If Anything Survives is a thematic, group art exhibition in three parts (Archeologies, Utopias & The Void). The collaborating artists participate with pieces of art in all three sections, which are presented at the same time in three different spaces in Exarcheia: in the neoclassical building at 40 Eressou Str., in Ypsilon Publications (15 Tzavella Str.) and in the exhibition space of the Potential Project (25 Andreou Metaxa Str.).
The sections are three different ways, three perspectives, three versions of a narrative based on a scenario that can be described as follows: “Let us imagine the end: of things, of events, of the world. This could be the Earth after a nuclear explosion or a catastrophic climate change. Or it could be the end of a world after a rapid transformation, which made it impossible to continue existing in its previous state. […] Then, let us assume that someone, at some point in the future, will learn about the world that once existed and will investigate the evidence of its existence; let us imagine, then, what is left behind, what is the evidence, the traces? After the world is over, what is left? If anything survives, what is it?
