Exhibition Museums the world inside

If you are in Sparta, Peloponnese, make a stop at the Museum of the Olive and the Greek Olive Oil to visit the interesting exhibition of cartoons by the Norwegian Geir Helgen titled Museums: the world inside which will last until September 16, 2013.

The exhibition of Geir Helgen is held in the context of the celebration of the 10th anniversary since the opening of the museum. Geir Helgen is a linguist, historian and archaeologist, with a long professional track record in the museums of Norway; he is also an exceptional amateur cartoonist. His drawings record and deftly satirise how museums are perceived by their visitors, but also by those working in them.

The exhibition, which was originally organised in 2009 in Italy by the International Committee for Regional Museums (ICR) of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), has already travelled to a number of countries in Europe (Croatia 2010, Slovenia 2010, Austria 2011, Finland 2012). In Greece, it was held for the first time at the Museum of Industrial Olive-oil production in Lesvos, in March 2013, with the collaboration of the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP), the Department of Cultural Technology and Communication (TPTE) of the University of the Aegean, and the International Committee for Regional Museums (ICR).
