Founded in 2000 and funded by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture & Sports, EMΣT | National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens holds the national collection of contemporary art of Greece and is located in the former FIX Brewery, in the heart of Athens. In addition to a series of temporary exhibitions, it also presents a selection of works from its collection, highlighting the work of artists Greece and further afield.

Led by artistic director, Katerina Gregos, the museum is committed to the promotion of artists from Greece and its diaspora and to exploring the rich and often contested histories and the cultural, socio-political entanglements of the geographical region surrounding and including Athens, which includes the Balkans, Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa, where cultures, diasporic currents and religions merge and confront one another, yielding complex and often unknown, forgotten or marginalised narratives.
