|Myth PhD | 2012 – 2013
Based on the Myth PhD (play hence destroy) thematic, Create an Accident proposes four outstanding new projects and a residency programme!
In collaboration with innovative artists and theorists from all over the world, Create an Accident offers the audience the opportunity to come in contact with artworks from around the multitude of arts, in places recognized for their pioneer action, and also at the urban fabric of the city.

From cosmogonic theories and Homer’s Ulysses to Lady Gaga and contemporary urban legends, from religious narrations and Acropolis’ architecture to conspiracy theories and Lionel Messi, Create an Accident chooses Myth to be the basic concept for the totality of its activities in 2012-2013.
Greek and foreign theoreticians and artists produce works and actions that drive through vantages and interpretations of Myth, from the viewpoint of contemporary urban culture. Theatrical performances, exhibitions, printed editions and interventions on the urban structure compound the core of a polymorphic program that elaborates on the myths of our global heritage and, at the same time, researches, renegotiates, reforms, rebuts, re-proposes or generates new individual and collective mythologies.
Springing from the concepts of Play and Destruction as fundamental manifestations of social formations, works that constitute Create an Accident’s program exploit and combine the unbridled freedom with the intricate nexus of rules, strategies and confinements that reside within these two concepts, attempting to give potential answers to the ever-present phenomenon of human communities concurring with the myths that they create.
Works that relentlessly delve into the core of Myths to mine the hows, the whys and the by whoms, projecting Play and Destruction as inextricable parts of the formulation, perpetuation and disappearance processes of social formations.
