    Exhibition. 1-16 October, 12.00-22.00, Athens School of Fine Arts, 256 Peiraios st, Rentis & Bouziani Museum, 27-31 Bouziani Str, Dafni Visual culture is a way to create forms of change. Social design, photography, illustration, video art, zines, street art, are powerful weapons of contemporary activism and the artists constantly develop this language. Images have the power to capture the eyes and the mind of the audience, to shock or to motivate the passing-by audience. Most of these icons become symbols of their era, forming a kind of “visual journalism” around the globe. In this exhibition, thirty designers, illustrators, street artists and photographers develop a social discourse through visual representations of mental health. The exhibition is built on a research on art forms and artists who open a dialogue about depression, psychic disorders, trauma, e.t.c. The images due to their striking visual impact present a memorable reflection of the social concerns about mental health and art in our era.
