Technopolis City of Athens, in collaboration with the Onassis Cultural Center, present a historical and cultural exhibition with re-enactment elements from the 80’s, titled “GR80s. Greece in the Eighties, Technopolis”. The event will take place from late January to late March 2017, at the Technopolis premises, which will be transformed into a map of Greece in the 80’s.

The 80s represent an idealized era, characterized by upward social mobility and prosperity, but they also symbolize the beginning of a long process that has lead to the current crisis. The aim of this event is not to create feelings of nostalgia for the past nor to point the finger at the supposed culprits — Rather, it is an effort to record and recreate a complex and many-faceted period of modern history, which has left its mark on the current generations and may well define the future ones. “Greece in the Eighties, Technopolis” will introduce visitors to the Greek ‘80s through a course of four thematic categories (politics, arts, lifestyle and technology) arranged within thirteen pavilions. Simultaneously, numerous events will take place throughout the duration of the exhibition. Namely, art exhibitions, concerts, theatrical performances, cultural happenings, scientific conferences and lectures, and educational workshops, for all kinds of social groups.
