Vangelis Vlahos: "The word allagi (change) was the main slogan of the 1981 election campaign of the Socialist Party (PASOK). It became a concrete point of reference for the time of political, social and cultural change after the end of the dictatorship. In 2007 the project Allagi (1981) attempted to gain a specific reading of the first nine months of the PASOK government using visual material that had been extracted from the archive of the right-leaning newspaper Eleftheros Kosmos (Free World). This work covers the period from the electoral victory of the PASOK in October 1981 until June 1982, when Eleftheros Kosmos ceased. The photographs and newsreel images from this period are presented in the form of a calendar, without making a selection or intervening in the chronology. The work attempts to explore the many-layered term ‘change’, its historical and current connotations, through the arbitrary narrative created in this way."
