The Biennial’s working basis, where the research and the preparation process take place, is symbolically located at the historic amphitheatre of the Athens School of Fine Arts, reinforcing the project’s concept and the correlated notions round Democracy, since the School and the rest of the building block of Polytechnion are strictly connected with the struggle of the Greek people against dictatorship in the seventies.
Participants’ proposals should be sending to the working team, a selection of ASFA’s students, in order to be rendered into 3Dimension Graphic Designs. and be installed in this form at the exhibition 3D spaces outdoors /indoors spaces of the White House. All over the whole procedure, the participant artists will be on continuous communication with the working team, through Skype and other electronic means, having the possibility to direct the students and discuss, supervise and control the upcoming results till the final completion of their work.
Students’ working team will be given the opportunity to directly submit their 3D proposal so as to participate as groups or individually in the WHB.
WHITE HOUSE BIENNIAL will create an “Open House” for volunteers involving up to four locations in Athens. Volunteers with technical 3D skills are invited from the WHB2013 for the effective execution of the ongoing international projects.
As ambassadors of the WHB, they are closely involved in the behind-the-scenes action as they work on an exciting array of roles that include event management, hospitality, administration, education and public outreach, logistics, programming, concierge and customer relations. Through their active and front-line engagement with the public, Biennial volunteers are given the enriching opportunity to gain knowledge of and exposure to contemporary art practices, enjoy first-hand information about the WHB and discover what goes into producing a world-class event; and at the same time, enjoy the unique opportunity of interacting with established artists, professionals, local and international visitors, and prominent members of the arts community.
