I come from my childhood...

(From 17/12/2017 to 31/5/2019)

The exhibition I come from my childhood* welcomes the visitor to the world of childrens clothes, worn within the Hellenic realm during the 19th and the first half of the 20th century.

It explores popular beliefs and practices about fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and the post-partum period and how certain womens clothes expressed them.

Displayed along with the dolls of Queen Olgas collection we find toys from our childhood as well as contemporary ones such as Barbie dolls and, dressed in Greek local costumes, Playmobil figures.

The narration is based on a story inspired by the animated movie Inside Out (Pixar, 2015). The central character is Remembrance, the personification of human memory. Clothes, pictures, and toys, along with visuals and sounds, wake up recollections of her childhood.
