“I have a dream” were the words pronounced by Martin Luther King during his speech in Washington in 1963 grew to become synonymous with the pursuit of changes – a motto that galvanised the activists of the revolt of May ’68, as well as provided hope for the effect of the activities of the citizens, who “demanded the impossible”.
The same words and aspirations adopts the international video art exhibition, “I have a dream”, that takes place at the Thessaloniki Centre of Contemporary Art from March 29th to May 31st. In this exhibition the audience will have the chance to see works of art revolving around the idea of “revolution” and its manifestations in reality.
The exhibition comes into being at a unique time – when for over a year now the societies of nearly the entire globe have been expressing their protest against the political, social, moral situation and the economic solutions in force that humiliate them. We ourselves often participate in demonstrations and protests, sensing how much started to depend on us, on our participation, voice, action.
The visitors will have the chance of touring the exhibition, guided by the curators of the museum Areti Leopoulou and Theodore Markoglou on Sundays April 7th and 21st and May 12th and 26th at 12.00.
The participation in the tour is free for all visitors of the museum (by presenting their entrance ticket)
