  • [01] Athens grants use of main city squares to 'documenta 14'

    Athens' municipal council approved on Thursday the use of central squares by the artists of the "documenta 14" modern art exhibition, part of which will be held in the Greek capital in April.

    "Athens will be at the center of cultural interest and important foreign newspapers, such as the Guardian and the New York Times, host and promote Athens as a dynamic center of modern cultural and urge their readers to visit," Athens mayor Giorgos Kaminis said.

    Syntagma square, National Resistance square located in front of the city hall, Avdi square in Metaxourgio and the pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou will host original works by artists from around the world. Cultural bodies and universities are also cooperating with the exhibition.

    Kaminis said that more than 5,000 people involved in art, such as museum directors and collectors have confirmed their participation, as well as 1,400 journalists from around the world.

    The opening of the Athens exhibition, titled "Learning from Athens", is scheduled for April 6, 7 and 8 and the event will last until July 12.

    The car, parked on Omirou Street, was spotted by the policeman guarding the bank who alerted police, requesting details of the registration number. After it was confirmed the car was stolen, police closed off the road to traffic and called a bomb disposal unit to check if there's a bomb in the car.
