Athenas street owns a unique identity, recounting the city's life in an original way through the years. Located in the core of the city resembles an eternal structure that is never completed while retaining the layers of time, it is an area that recalls the collective memory. It can be described as a living organism in a constant transformation or an open shape tending to all directions.

Intro
Throughout the years Athenas Street has been the market where the western world met the world of the East. It mutated from glorious with its merchants’ residencies, to a ghetto of workers, petty traders, prostitutes, and criminals as a constant battlefield. In contradiction to that, it was named after the goddess Athena, a beloved deity of the ancient Greeks, the personification of wisdom, knowledge, and art. It connects the Monastiraki area (the way to ascend the sacred hill of Acropolis) with Omonia Square (the heart of the city) and is one of the main streets of Athens.

Due to the COVID-19 issue, this exhibition at Atelier Cepissakova was cancelled during MJW2020. In the coming weeks, we show you all impressions online through our #VirtualExhibitions.
