The artists participating in the exhibition address the issue beyond romanticism and barren attachments to the otherwise glorious and heroic past. Through the memories of historical events and their personal experiences regarding the sparkling Greek spirit in its timeless course, they harmoniously express the revolution – the battles, the redemption, the freedom, the joy and the pain – through their artistic work.
