space52 is a contemporary artist-run space founded in 2017 by the artist Dionisis Christofilogiannis. We aim to embrace and support the practices of artists through an annual program of art exhibitions, publications, screenings, artist workshops and artist residencies. We work with a growing network of artists, guest curators and partnering institutions on long term collaborative programs with a focus on new ways of experiencing and producing contemporary art.

Through our online journal One After Another we publish original research and art criticism in the form of reviews, interviews, and essays on local and international artists and exhibitions.

Space52 is located in the heart of Kerameikos, Athens, a neighborhood still rooted in industry, filled with auto-repair shops, small businesses, artist studios, and galleries. We are particularly interested in developing programs and assisting artists in their engagement with our locality and surrounding community.

Το Space52 ιδρύθηκε από τον καλλιτέχνη Διονύση Χριστοφιλογιάννη το 2017, υποστηρίζει καλλιτέχνες με έδρα την Αθήνα και αναζητά συνεχώς συνεργασίες με χώρους τέχνης και επαγγελματίες από το εξωτερικό. Η κοινότητα και το δίκτυό μας εξελίσσεται συνεχώς υποστηρίζοντας συνεργασίες, ανταλλαγές και ερευνητικά έργα. Το Space52 λειτουργεί σαν ένας κόμβος για τοπικούς και διεθνείς δημιουργούς, διανοούμενους και θεωρητικούς. Κύριο μέλημα μας είναι οι τρέχουσες έρευνες της αναπτυσσόμενης δυναμικής μας κοινότητας. Το Space52 λειτουργεί σαν ένα επωαστήριο ιδεών και πειραματισμών της Αθηναϊκής καλλιτεχνικής σκηνής.
