"Mediterranean temperament?" Regional stereotypes and other myths

The Young Artists’ Workshop of the 4th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art
place year takes with the collaboration with the Action Field Kodra (Municipality of Kalamaria).
The participants are invited to explore issues regarding the regional stereotypes associated with the Mediterranean. Why the Mediterranean now? While at that time still theoretical and practical ideologies focus on the idea of globalization, the Thessaloniki Biennale is dealing with the Mediterranean conditions and what are its characteristics in East, West, North and South.

These thoughts combined with the familiar stereotype of the "Mediterranean temperament" are the possible questions posed by the curators for this year's workshop, inviting the tutors of the workshop, along with the participating artists, to explore, respond, discuss and even to reject or re-approach.

The aim is to produce an exhibition that will take place in January 2013 at Warehouse B1.
