Q: What is the difference between today's music and the one that was before? Why hip-hop and music in principle have ceased to be a protest? A: There is hip-hop, protesting against social injustice, perhaps, today's youth is focused on something else, for example, video games, social networks. Who wants to write songs about the North Korean missile program or the war in Ukraine?
In Thessaloniki, capital of Northern Greece, the international art fair will be realised for the second time. Last year, works by the conceptual artist and photographer Heinz-Günter Mebusch were shown in cooperation with East-German Art project OSTRALE. In 2017 an icon of the Fluxus-movement: Wolf Vostell will be honoured with a museum show. His art has long been appreciated in Greece since its beginning. Art Thessaloniki has started not only as a global art market place, but also as a mediator between north-south differences and especially between Europe and the oriental cultures.
