About

The non-profit international social organization of Contemporary Art and Culture "KROMA", inaugurates on Saturday February 17, 2024 at 7 pm, the group exhibition of 18 artists "Memory Void" at the exhibition space of ROMANTSO, the historical building of the magazine of the same name (3 Anaxagoras Street -5).


Text editing: Angelina Spanou

"A memory gap is defined as the loss of memory, caused by various causes. Intense psychological shock, substance abuse or aging can cause forgetfulness, a forgetfulness that is also strongly observed at the collective level in modern times.
18 artists are inspired by the "blackout" phenomenon and become observers of a society that survives through oblivion, temporary or permanent. Concepts and symbols of the past persistently claim space, as outdated statements, obsessions, but also a means of entrapment; of the Self, and of the Other. At the same time, memory loss is presented as a demand, in a world where the individual is unable to find his place and raise his stature against the systems and ideas that oppress him.
Through this different recording of historical events, national narratives, and class differences, the artists recall experiences deeply rooted in Greek society, inviting us to explore their usefulness and function today, but also the personal relationship of each of us with them. The materials that pass, sometimes fragile and fleeting, sometimes hard and solid, are organically included in this dialogue, on the concepts of memory, identity, the past and individual and collective freedom."

Participants in the exhibition:
Dimitris Agathopoulos, Vassilis Alexandrou, Panagiota Apostolopoulou, Fani Arapi, Fenia Iliadou, Andreas Mitropoulos, Konstantinos Pardalis, Paresia Pasipoularidou, Vivi Perysinaki, Nikos Predaris, Athena Robier, Andreas Sitorego, Konstantinos Tsiutas, Chrysa Skordakis, Ioanna Tzamba, K Constantinos Teligadis, Fotis Raftopoulos , Haris Chilitsis

Opening: 17 February 2024, 19:00

Educational programme:
As part of the exhibition, on Sunday 25 February 2024 at 12:30, there will be a free educational program for kindergarten and primary school children, inspired by the exhibition and her works: "Recalling Memory: An Artistic Journey with Photographs"
The workshop combines the magic of photographs with the creativity of collage. Children are led on a journey of discovery of the 20th century through images and encounters with memory. The children know the artists and talk with them.
The educational program is provided free of charge by KROMA's artistic and educational team.
