OMNIBUS for Direct Democracy
The Athens Biennale is pleased to host during the last week of its duration the "OMNIBUS for Direct Democracy" with the collaboration of the Goethe-Institut in Athens. The OMNIBUS will arrive at the Water Plaza on Tuesday 29 September and will depart on Friday 2 October.
The 'OMNIBUS for Direct Democracy', initiated by Joseph Beuys, is a white old Berlin Bus with a golden crown on it. The bus is a mobile artwork and the starting point for debates and thought-provoking impulses.One and a half year after the death of Beuys the first 'OMNIBUS for Direct Democracy in Germany' went on tour. Departing from the exhibition of "Documenta 8", it made its way through Germany, stopping at 700 stations. Conforming to Beuys’ ideal, its drivers were looking for the dialogue with people, in order to promote the active forming of the 'social sculpture'.Aiming to bring about the unity between art and life, the 'OMNIBUS for Direct Democracy in Germany' is going on tour through southeastern Europe where it will stop at each of the Goethe-Institutes in this region. At each stop, it will offer its visitors a platform for the fluctuation of thoughts as well as for talking, debating and other activities. By doing so, the bus will function as a panel for interaction between people and at the same time it will be the living metaphor for the concept of an ideal social system. Society becomes a social sculpture, in which anybody may live his or her creativity.
