The question Now what? is the starting point of the 4th Athens Biennale 2013. AGORA emerges out of the search for answers. A social event, a space for the exchange of ideas and a setting for reflection and critique is created at the very center of Athens. AGORA is hosted in two sites: the building of the National Bank of Greece at 8-10 Sofokleous str., a historical building that formerly housed the Athens Stock Exchange, and CAMP Contemporary Art Meeting Point, 4 Eupolidos & 2 Apellou str. at Kotzia Square.
The Athens gasworks, the site where "Technopolis"City of Athens is located, reopened its gates to the public, approximately 30 years after its operation closedown, as Athens's first industrial museum.
The Athens gasworks was established in 1857, just three years after the Douroutis silk mill, in order to cover the city's need for public lighting.
With its undisputable charm, this area is one of the most frequented by visitors and natives alike. Plaka's winding pathways carry thousands of years of history. Walk amongst the buildings whose facades are dressed in 19th century neoclassical design and architecture. Dine at one or several of its restaurants. And explore the ancient monuments, contemporary museums and traditional souvenir shops throughout.
Its befitting that this monument the center of commercial and business life in ancient times would later give rise to the buzzing shopping district that surrounds it today. Of course, Monastiraki does not compare to the milieu of the ancient agora, but it still continues to inspire those who live, work and visit the area.
