Pythagoras II – Support for research teams at the Athens School of Fine Arts

The Pythagoras II – Support for research teams at the Athens School of Fine Arts project brought about the realisation of two research programmes that charted, on the one hand, the presence of women in the public sphere of literature and art, from the early 20th century until the end of the Interwar period, as attested by the biggest literary and art journals of that time and, on the other hand, the artistic achievements of women who graduated from ASFA between 1980 and 2004.

The research project entitled “The artistic and literary presence of women in literary and art periodicals, 1900-1940” charted the presence of women in the public sphere of literature and art, from the early 20th century until the end of the Interwar period, as attested by the biggest literary and art periodicals of that time. The project team recorded published work of women, both original and translated, in the field of poetry, prose, theatre and even literary criticism. At the same time, they looked into the presence of women, both art theorists and practising artists, on the art scene. They isolated articles written by the first female art critics, and any published reference to Greek and international female artists (articles, studies, biographies, participations in exhibitions, competitions, charity events).

The project produced a database, academic essays and a publication with the announcements of the project’s researchers in the conference held to publicise the Project’s results.

The research project entitled ‘‘Female graduates of the Athens School of Fine Arts 1980-2004 – An interdisciplinary approach’’ looked into:

  • The demographic, socio-psychological and educational dimensions of women who graduated from ASFA between 1980 and 2004
  • The artistic output of female ASFA graduates in relation to questions pertaining to the “woman-art” issue.
  • The work of female ASFA graduates and how it was received by Greek curators and critics.
  • Female artists and female art on the Greek contemporary arts scene.
  • The influence of female studies and gender studies in undergraduate art courses abroad.
  • The political views of female ASFA graduates (1980-2004) and gender identity.
  • Love – companionship – family in the context of a career in art.
