This new exhibition, curated by Denys Zacharopoulos, art historian-artistic director MMCA in collaboration with Alexios Papazacharias and Maro Psyrra, includes more than 200 works of art from renowned Greek and foreign artists and is under the auspices of the Hellenic Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
The exhibition presents the European artistic reality through the presence of Greek artists who were dispersed throughout Europe and the relationships they developed with artists from other European countries or social groups who had also been expatriated, exiled, immigrants or were simply travelers along the European cultural horizon.
Through emblematic works and unpublished documents there is a highlight of the complex European relations created since 1945 up to today from a series of people who in order to support the ideals of freedom, democracy and human rights, moved from one place to another both geographically and mentally, ideologically and artistically.
This particular exhibition has been funded with the support from the European Commission.
