June 12th begins the World Cup in Brazil. For a whole month the football fans - and not only, will glorify the "round goddess". In the same period 11 visual artists in the center of Athens, exhibits the "F is for Football" and explores football as a social and cultural phenomenon, with all the contradictions and ambiguities that intrinsically incorporates both temporal and today, the era of globalization. A phenomenon, that seems even times have changed, remains unchanged. Of course we will watch the football matches! In Skouze3 we will show all World Cup matches every day to create a dialectical relationship between the sport itself and the exhibition, adding a festive character that is so fitting with the same spirit of football society. Through a selection of old and new works (photographs , installations, paintings , video), the participants have commented critically the modern football, the homo footballus, and also other issues associated with football: from the politics of the identity, propaganda and violence, to issues of space, architecture and the future states of football.

Artists: Yiannis Theodoropoulos, Antonis Kapnisis, Christos Michaelides, Maro Michalakakos, Dimitris Dokatzis, Nikos Papadimitriou, Artemis Potamianou, Efi Spyrou, Pavlos Fysakis, Dionisis Christofilogiannis, Versaweiss
