The Civilian as a Citizen
In a Greek society which is deeply fragmented by fore conflicting attitudes, it is only reasonable for Culture and issues related to Arts to be presented as of secondary importance. This estimate is mainly due to the prevailing strategy existing for decades, that, in order to produce cultural events, there must be pre-existing funding. Any policy revolved around Culture presupposes public money without any financial return to the society, nevertheless, adapted to the politicians’ “needs”.
The current crisis forced Culture and Arts to a dead end as any artistic manifestation was identified with a collapsing state. It is only inevitable for such ‘governmental-diet Culture’ to collapse. However, due to the fact that Culture in its essence exceeds far beyond any “crisis” and any “statism”, fortunately collectives still exist in need of artistic creation, organizing their visibility so that Art does not depend upon public funding or public relations …
The paradox: in the ancient Greek city the ‘civilian’ is the one who does not actively participate in the society; on the contrary, he is characterised by his denial on wanting to act upon the society as an active citizen. In the “Greek crisis”, when all ideas and concepts are so far removed from their actual meaning, the hope for re-creation is based upon active citizens rather than the state. We warmly thank them all.
