In 2021, Greece celebrates the 200th anniversary of its War of Independence from the Othoman Empire. The Greek struggle inspired 19th-century artists and intellectuals, such as Lord Byron and Eugène Delacroix, and breached the anti-liberal European political order.
SMCK Magazine’s 4th issue “Greece 200” highlights how Greek thought, art and tradition move contemporary art and design.
#Greece_200 comes out in late June 2021.
