[ The political executions during the civil war in 1944-49, in Goudi area ]
Installation with video, sound and pictures
“The Project Sotiria: Memory and disease in arts”, group exhibition in the abandoned rooms of the hospital Sotiria in Athens, 18/6/2010 - 3/9/2010
Created by Ioanna Neophytou and Aggelos Cralis
Exhibition curated by Panagiotis Papadopoulos


‘Sotiria’ Hospital, (meaning salvation in greek), has been the biggest sanatorium for consumption in Athens since its foundation, in the early 1900s. The main purpose of the project was to investigate the connection between memory and disease. What mainly drew our attention was the opposition between the aim of a hospital - curing people - and the cruel reality of executing. In the installation, made in cooperation with Angelos Krallis, we studied the history of the hospital in the Greek Civil War in 1944-1949. In that period, a jail was in use in the area of the hospital, where many political prisoners were kept captive. The installation was designed to represent and record the conditions of the time, using archival material, photographs, newspapers and interviews of survivors. Students, doctors, elders and political activists were killed in the hospital with the charge of involvement in communism. All the archives collected were exposed on the sheets of the hospital while pictures of the executed were hanging from the roof.
