*Art (is) Work: True Story
The imposed lockdown has isolated the Field of Arts and Culture, diminishing their necessity in human society, and thus questioning the economic importance of Artists in both the local and global markets.
When Art is described as a hobby, Artists, in the collective mind, are inevitably diminished to thoughtless individuals who do not work but play all day, every day. Thus, one may argue that demanding from society to respect and value the Artists and their labour is unreasonable.
Téchne wishes to offer a safe space for all Berlin-based artists of all ethnicities and Greek artists from all over the world to tell their side of the TRUE STORY by sharing a short video or a photo of their current project or themselves during or immediately after long hours of art-working. Is the world ready to recognise and honor our toil?
