Adhocracy Athens is the continuation of the research started for the 1st Istanbul Design Biennial in 2012, after traveling to New York (New Museum, 2013) and London (LimeWharf, 2013) the event now takes place in Athens.
Adhocracy is a philosophy of action characterized by creative, flexible, purposeful attitude. Unlike bureaucracy and its fixed schemes, Adhocracy is adjustable to different challenges and situations. Adhocracy uses available systems in unimagined ways to face existing problems quickly and efficiently.
From Do-It-Yourself to Do-It-With-Others, from new technologies to a common ground, this exhibition brings together a group of practitioners, artist, designers, architects, and thinkers that whose work transcends the traditional ways of designing, and are actively working on the intersection of the political, social and economic field. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of activities aimed to expand the theoretical background, the knowledge and the fun that are inherent to the concept of Adhocracy. Workshops, debates, presentations and two hackatons, are some of the formats selected to do so.
