In the 100 works of this exhibition the artists invite us to see the countries which they visited and also challenge us to reflect, subvert or confirm stereotypes and ideas on the region.

The exhibition is presented as part of the program "Thessaloniki-Cultural Crossroads" initiated by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism (with the financial support of OPAP).
