A - DASH is delighted to announce the launch of:

A Time of Her Own

Wednesday 15th May 2024 @ The Hellenic Centre, London, 19:00
Free entry | Bookings via Eventbrite

Join us for the launch of A Time of Her Own, an online, interactive, platform that integrates female portraits retrieved from archival material, published in the Greek press during the 1970s and 1980s, along with photographs derived from personal collections and family photo albums from the same decades. 

Political and personal shelves are intertwined, producing new, ephemeral and unexpected outcomes. The experience of these infinite combinations in the form of diptychs, attempts to create relations and challenge notions of the public and the private and eventually allow different readings to emerge: when and how do the feminist political and social narratives go hand in hand with the personal experience? In what ways do public demands and struggles become visible in everyday life? How is the female subject narrated collectively and how is it through individual memory? How was she in her own time? 

Join the project’s creator Zoe Hatziyannaki and curator Christina Petkopoulou and have the chance to interact with the project.

As part of the project's launch at the Hellenic Center, there will be available limited copies of the accompanying A Time Of Her Own edition, designed by Dimitris Mitropoulos and co-published by A-DASH and MISC.

Book your place here (free attendance).

The bar will open one hour before the event starts and remain open for one hour after the event finishes. Please arrive 15 minutes before the event for a prompt 19:00 start.

A Time of Her Own was materialised with the support of and under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sports.

The event is supported by the American College of Greece, Frances Rich School of Fine & Performing Arts.
