Lo and Behold (LaB) is an artist-run, nonprofit organization based in Athens, Greece, serving as a platform for the production of cultural activities, both in Greece and abroad, with a focus on contemporary art. LaB’s objective is to highlight the work of art itself as the outcome of artistic inquiry, rather than as a commercial product. The organization is concerned with research and experimentation regarding new methods and strategies of contemporary art production and management. It aims at dialogue and direct involvement with diverse social and cultural frameworks from all over Europe. Given current socioeconomic circumstances, this dialogue is now more important than ever.
