It is worth mentioning that Action Field Kodra, one of the most important contemporary art exhibitions in Greece, integral part of Thessaloniki’s art life, has been organised since 2001, within the framework of the festival “Para thin alos” of the Municipality of Kalamaria. Since its beginnings and during all this time period, Action Field Kodra has been trying to promote young artists, trying to approach contemporary art production with works of various media, such as painting, sculpture, performance, photography, video-art, new technologies and web-art. This year’s festival however, reflects on its past, by redefining its importance at the Greek visual arts scene and regroups for the future.
