The Hysterophimia (tr. posthumous fame) Pavilion is the Greek Pavilion for this year's edition of The Wrong. Starting from Athens and representing a variety of Greek and international artists, Hysterophimia deals with the cultural product of the digital era: the image. The images are not just the ones that we produce and consume and the ones that represent us, but also they are the ones created by machines.
The technological advance has made possible the creation of our consuming and behavioural image via Big Data collection and the image recognition of AI algorithms. A new visual grammar emerges and the deep digital texture of the image brings out new aesthetics and new ways of representing and interpreting the world.
