The DP Conference Photo Album: Unlocking the archive

The sessions of the third day were dedicated to the archive of Dimitris Papaioannou, the creation, digitization, and promotion of which has been undertaken by the University of Peloponnese research team. Eleni Papalexiou briefly presented the team’s work and Avra Xepapadakou led us into the secret world of archives by talking about their multiplying value and effect and likening them to cabinets of curiosities. The researchers Elpida Komianou, Evangelia Chelioti and Paraskevi Damala narrated unknown stories from Dimitris Papaioannou's archive, using documentation from 1986 to 1992. This was followed by a more thorough analysis of Papaioannou's archival material under the coordination of Stephanie Merakos by Valia Vraka, Paraskevi Damala, Georgia-Maria Papadaki, Louisa Nikolaou, Vassilis Poulopoulos and Costas Vassilakis.
