The group exhibition COMBINED derives its ideas and aims from the different meanings of the specific word, such as to add together, to come together, to unite in order to have an effect, while it activates every form of combinatorial reasoning, even that of a scheme. The implications of the word’s connotations are closely related, metaphorically and literally, to the worldwide political instability and crisis of the present years. In this light, the artworks of the participating artists expose the ways in which the financial and political crisis mechanisms divert our attention away from the devastating, irreversible effects of environmental destruction, as well as the operational modes of capitalism. In addition, multiculturalism, the systematic support of actions related to both visible and invisible divisions, intolerance, misinformation and the violation of human rights are examined.

The exhibition aims at revealing the ways of contemporary art’s power to uncover the conditions that feed a global political situation. A situation, which increasingly ignores human values, obscures truth and justice, as well as openly marginalizes attempts to improve our troubled world. Perhaps, in the spirit of humanism, we can take action to subvert the establishments that perpetuate and breed the destruction of our inner and outer world.
