Contemporary Art Showcase Athens (C.A.S.A.) is a cooperative group from Athens, Greece, initiated/run by artists to create and maintain an ongoing platform for the presentation, production, and discussion of a variety of artistic/cultural projects. The activities of C.A.S.A. involve curation of exhibitions and festivals, organisation of seminars and workshops, & contextualisation and facilitation in the development of individual and collaborative projects.
The goal of C.A.S.A. is to develop a broad alliance between independent artists, curators, and cultural organizers, with the common purpose of building new bridges between art venues, institutions, and the public. C.A.S.A. aims at cultivating environments that support novel, horizontal, unilateral interactions, and discourse, while pointing to the increasing role of grassroots structures in the facilitation of emerging art.
Since its inception in 2014, C.A.S.A. has collaborated with organizations, groups, and venues on various projects, both nationally and internationally.
