Anniversary exhibition entitled "Nafplio: place of Remembrance of the Struggle for Freedom" takes place in the old Parliament building (the Vouleftiko) of Nafplio, from Saturday, July 17th to August 31st 2021, for the 200 years since the beginning of the Greek Revolution of 1821.
The exhibition "Nafplio: Place of Remembrance of the struggle for freedom" traces the semantic context of memory, through artistic production and creates an independent and symbolic space, where memories and history meet in the context of an emotional experience. The complexity and multilevel character of the anniversary exhibition becomes a memory tool, built on the feelings and orientations of the present.
Twenty-five contemporary artists, bridging place and history, create works that provoke interesting discussions about the past, present and future, on a personal and social level. Leading representatives of the Generation of the '80s, together with younger artists, propose through their art a journey of self-knowledge and search in the reserves of their memory and experiences.
