The EESC is to host a photography exhibition, "Images of Another Europe 1985-1989", featuring the work of Constantin Pittas, a well-known photographer from Greece.

In the late 1980s, Costantinos 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, the faces of the lonely or the elderly in the West.

This exhibition travels back in time to 1958, to the first legal act of the EEC/EU, to highlight its historical significance.
