Between 1974 and 1976, following the end of the dictatorship in Greece, the store on Tositsa 5 in Exarcheia was activated as the first artist-run space in Athens, called Center for the Fine Arts and founded by an independent artist group (Kleopatra Digka, Thymios Panourias, Yannis Psychopedis, and Yannis Valavanidis). In the recent past it was used as a commercial space for selling audiovisual equipment and wooden parquet floors. For the last three years the space remained closed due to the financial crisis. The renovation of the space and the recollection of its history has been an important part of Georgia Sagri’s piece Dynamis.
