A photo exhibition to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the wall

affiche exposition

To commemorate the 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the EESC is to host the photography exhibition "Images of Another Europe 1985-1989", featuring the work of Constantin Pittas, a well-known photographer from Greece.

In the late 1980s, Mr Pittas roamed all over the divided continent, from south to north, and from Lisbon to Krakow, in both Eastern and Western Europe. His camera was focused on the faces of fearful, repressed people in the East and the faces of the lonely or the elderly in the West.

His “naive” idea was to present Europeans as an entity, as a large family extending beyond borders and walls.

The official exhibition opening will be held on 30 October, attended by the EESC president Luca Jahier. Mr Pittas's work will remain on display in Foyer 6 until 22 November 2019.  (ck)
