Who Owns History?

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  In an article published in Time Magazine (Who Owns History? – February, 21) Richard Lacayo explores the notion of cultural property and “universal museums”, presenting opinions and arguments from all sides. One of the Museum professionals he talks to is Dimitrios Pandermalis: “Pandermalis is president of the organization behind the New Acropolis Museum in Athens, initially conceived as a standing rebuke to the British Museum’s continued possession of the most passionately disputed cultural property, the 5th century B.C. Elgin Marbles…,” he writes.
