Threads of Freedom

Paraphrasing the title of the well-known myth with a twist, the parallelism points precisely to the search for freedom and to the battle to conquer it; personal and social freedom, as well as their mutual relationship.

Trying to find freedom, both personally and collectively as a society, each of us is navigating labyrinths, where, like internal and external forces, the primordial beasts of impunity, promiscuity, authoritarianism, apathy and indifference, oppose the finding the exit leading to freedom.

The thread of freedom/ Freedom’s thread leads us into an ever-evolving labyrinth, where each illusion is constantly changing form, making the path indifferent for some, an interesting object of knowledge for others, and a tool of exploitation for others.

In any case, freedom is not a given.

For the celebrations of the 200th anniversary of the Revolution of 1821 and under the auspices of the “Greece 2021” Committee, the Berlin Association of Greek and Philhellenic Artists, Téchne, invites artists to participate in the art competition: “Threads of Freedom”.
