Artemis Potamianou, artist, curator and director of Platforms Project, an Independent Art Fair based in Athens, will give a public lecture about her practice. During her days of studio visits with artists in The Hague she has found the time to tell us more about her work.

Artemis Potamianou sees herself as a Virtual DJ using art works and art history in order to create new meaning and perspective. Her work explores the ways and mechanisms of presenting art.
She believes that the atmosphere and the people in the world of art make up a miniature of society: the dynamics of authority, power, collaboration and interaction, the roles, the sources of inspiration, the politics, the setting and the people of art constitute a microcosm with direct analogies to society.
