"about, by, through, towards, despite" is a podcast series on different aspects of the independent Athens art scene. Produced for "p o s t documenta: contemporary arts as territorial agencies", this series provides an imprint of the local scene in the aftermath of documenta 14.
In "The de-publicized territory: Institutions and territorial policies", Theofilos Traboulis revisits recent examples from the cultural field in Greece to critically examine the intersection of cultural heritage, contemporary arts and territorial policies. Discussing concrete cases, he traces the connections of territorial materiality, authenticity and identity, and argues that the policies of major cultural foundations are increasingly instrumentalizing the arts, through the ever-expanding deterritorialization and privatization of the public sphere.
