The bracelet: Neo-Hellenic and Ethnic (19th-20th century)
Exhibition of the bracelet collection of Katerina Korre-Zografou
From the 10th of November 2008 to the end of May 2009 Hellenic Cosmos hosted an exhibition with a collection of bracelets by the Professor of the University of Athens Ms Katerina Korre-Zografou. The exhibition was the first to be organized at the new exhibition areas of the "THEATRON".
It included more than two hundred bracelets of the 19th and 20th century, modern Greek and from other countries. Each one with a special story, reflecting known and unknown aspects of everyday life. In this way personal stories are the starting point for a deeper examination of wider historical and social issues, like population movement, since a lot of times the bracelets were found far from the place where they were created, but also issues that had to do with the social stratification, since jewels were a sign of their owners' prosperity.
