Benaki Museum

Athens, Greece, 2007

The Topoi exhibition was the Museum’s third grand venture in Athens. By proposing the rather abstract title of Topoi, which translates to “places”, art historian and the Museum’s artistic director, Denis Zaharopoulos, referred to “conceptual places which every one of us can be part of, or imagine what artistic creation and works of art mean, what meaning and times signify… and what is meant by the free movement of ideas and the dynamic abrogation of prejudice and dogmatism”. By creating modules and spaces, the exhibition proposed a revision of the Museological approach, which aimed_ at the best possible presentation of permanent collections.
