> Thes­sa­loniki > To March 7 The Goethe In­sti­tute in Thes­sa­loniki presents a se­ries of pho­to­graphic portraits by Greek-Ger­man artist An­ge­los Gavrias. Based on the works of Ger­man pho­tog­ra­pher Au­gust Sander, Gavrias’s work con­sists of 30 im­ages, each de­pict­ing mem­bers of the Greek ex­pa­tri­ate com­mu­nity in Ger­many. The ex­hibit shows the thor­ough­ness with which Greeks have in­te­grated into Ger­man so­ci­ety, even while pre­serv­ing their na­tive cus­toms. Gavrias – in­ves­ti­gat­ing his Greek roots through an artis­tic method de­vel­oped in Ger­many – is him­self a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of this process. The ex­hibit runs to March 7. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is free. Goethe In­sti­tute, 66 Vas­silis­sis Ol­gas, tel 231.088.9610; www.goethe.de
