Abstract

"The National History Museum, in view of the bicentennial celebrations of the 1821 Greek Revolution, is organising a series of various activities under the general title “1821: Echoes today”. The aim is to offer an original approach, through various forms of art (literature, poetry, music, theatre, etc), to the revolution, the historical events and everyday life in Greece in the early 19th century, and to explore their repercussions for the present and future. In this context, contemporary artists present their works and offer talks to the public about the Greek Revolution as a source of inspiration, the problems of approaching a distant historical period, the influence of art and literature on the transmission of historical knowledge, etc. In this context, contemporary artists present their works and talk to the public about the Greek Revolution as a source of inspiration, the problems of approaching a distant historical period, the influence of art and literature on the transmission of historical knowledge, etc."
