State of Concept is the first non-profit institution with a permanent location and a yearly programme to operate in Greece. Founded in 2013 by art critic and curator iLiana Fokianaki, it is an Athens based independent platform aiming to operate as a bridge between the Greek capita and the international contemporary art scene with the core interest of bringing to the fore artistic practices that question the current social, economic and political phenomena of Europe and beyond.

The institution, since its inception, has been asking questions that relate to the notion of the State and its contemporary condition in the West and beyond, as well as the state of conceptualisation of contemporary art and all the nuances it carries. Its exhibitions are formed as chapters that together with the institution itself perform «the State as such», in an effort to address from within an introspection on the functionality and grammar of institutional building, in precarious conditions of peripheral localities.
