The Mediterranean Experience

Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki

The subject of ‘the Mediterranean’ has been extensively researched by the greatest historians of the twentieth century. (….) Our definition of the Mediterranean experience is about people and things that are not directly related to the Mediterranean as a geographical and historical notion. (….) Our approach and research are different; they are based on an intuition, which does not aspire to any kind of composition or even analysis, but simply represents an initial, tentative, critical and systematic taxonomy of our material. Our ambitions are rather modest. We have consciously limited ourselves to the collection of evidence, facts and works, purposely avoiding generalizations, ideological constructs and the pervasive folkloric depictions of the Mediterranean“. Denys ZacharopoulosThe Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art presents, in the context of this year’s fourth edition of the Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, the exhibition “The Mediterranean experience: The Mediterranean as a spatial paradigm for the circulation of ideas and meaning. An introduction”, curated by Denys Zacharopoulos
