Visit: Pinakothiki Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas, Athens, AtticaFrom the ground floor to the third floor of the building is showcased the intellectual and artistic creation of Greece in particularly critical time, from the end of World War I and the Asia Minor Catastrophe until the eve of the dictatorship in 1967, which also constitutes the climate in which Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika lived and developed his artistic perceptions. This is the first attempt in Greece to capture this intellectual creation as a whole, highlighting the internal dialectic relationship of the various expressions of the human spirit. Artistic creation (painting, sculpture, printmaking, music, theatre, cinema, photography) meets architecture, the art of writing (prose, poetry, literature, criticism) and also historical and philosophical thought. Through the artworks, manuscripts, publications, photographs and personal artefacts of two hundred and one artists and intellectuals. You can participate in an exciting journey into the words of ideas in twentieth century Greece. The exhibited material eloquently captures the concerns, anxieties and achievements of Greeks engaged in artistic creation, highlighting both their interrelationships and their dialogue with corresponding concerns in the rest of Europe.
