Photographs, posters, publications, announcements, analyses and studies compose a dynamic field that maps the complex relationship between the left and the national question, the formation of a militant genealogy starting from the revolution, the multiple appearance of 1821 in rhetorical places and politics, practices of the communist movement. From 3 March 2021, will allow us to rethink the history of the Greek 20th century and at the same time to understand the traces of a 19th-century revolution in the formation of the revolutionary project of the Greek left.
