F.A.R. is a program presented by 3 137. F.A.R. is an atlas of the city of Athens mapping the evolving economy, the housing market and the various communities. It’s a storytelling action around the present and future of the city. 3 137 believe that despite the economic recession of the last decade and the political instability in the wider Mediterranean region, the city has become a place to be and that at the same time, over the last five years, the local art scene is changing; the number of art spaces is growing and venues and initiatives of varying scale are developing.
On December 8th, the program begins with F.A.R. RADIO, a temporary web radio station, broadcasting at 3137.gr/far-radio-player/. Invited guests of F.A.R. RADIO are art initiatives of the city, individuals with a research interest in housing and collective/individual property and employees or owners of small businesses in Exarcheia neighborhood. Project spaces, art initiatives and art professional will develop radio shows, featuring sounds, music and discussion.
At the same time, four interventions by Can Altay, Zoe Giambouldaki, Diohandi and Kostis Velonis will be installed outside 3 137, accessible 24/7. The interventions aim to comment on the use and design of public space and reflect on stories of cultural heritage and language.
