Greeks Around the World: The Greeks of Cairo



THE GREEKS OF CAIRO - published in the GreekNewsAgenda.gr on June 24, 2014

The Greeks of Cairo is a photo exhibition by Paul Kozalidis and Athena Casole. . . . and is currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art Mahmoud Mukhtar. . . 

The exhibition is the main event of the Greek-Egyptian Summer Cultural Week and is an initiative by the Greek Consulate in Cairo in cooperation with the Benaki Museum and the Greek Cultural Center based in Cairo.

Hitherto, the Greek Diaspora in Egypt has been mainly associated with the Greeks of Alexandria.  What is unique about this exhibition is that it sheds light to the significant, however, less known Greek community of Cairo and the fact that it depicts aspects of their everyday life.  . . . . The project will also be exhibited at the Benaki Museum in Greece.
