ONASSIS AiR would like to invite all interested to our Fall 2019, inaugural artistic & curatorial research program, running between September 16-December 8, 2019 in Athens, Greece.

ONASSIS AiR is a year-round program, located in the urban center of Athens, that grounds its mission in commitment to supporting artistic process and research, towards a less product-obsessed arts ecosystem.

ONASSIS AiR space, program and the resources are rooted in an un-disciplined, artist-run community of peers. A place where all the participants can work and think and eat together as a community that does not strive for the next project, the next premiere, the next product. A community and space that is very much local. A community that has the ability to pause, to rethink how each one of us functions within the society we live in. A space that offers time. Time to learn, to unlearn, to change, or go deeper, by doing and undoing or non-doing.
