Inventing Revolution is a digital exhibition that came as a result of a workshop conducted by Alexis Fidetzis with the participation of undergraduate students from the Athens School of Fine Arts. The students were introduced to the idea that several traditions we encounter today have to an extent been invented in a modernist context. This concept, that raises questions in regards to what is considered to be pure and historically accurate, has been developed by Eric Hobsbawm and Terrence Ranger in the collective volume The Invention of Tradition.
The workshop was graced with insights and presentations by contemporary artists Giannis Delagrammatikas, Dimitris Papachristos, Maria Varela and Ino Varvariti. The workshop was the result of a collaboration between ATOPOS cvc and the ASFA XI Painting Studio.
