The “Athens City Museum- Vouros-Eutaxias Foundation” highlights the contribution of all the invisible heroines of the Greek Revolution, approaching their unrecognized action, through eight works of contemporary art.
Inspired by selected, emblematic female figures of the revolution, such as that of Bouboulina or Manto Mavrogenous, the artists contrast the past with the present.
The original artworks of the exhibition, bring light to all those women, those important unknowns of yesterday, but also turn their gaze to the present, trying to highlight expressions of courage and perseverance in the societies of the early 21st century.
