Immediately after the end of Megaro Gyzi Festival 2010, on 27/8, the opening of photographic exhibition, titled "Frangika", by German photographer Konrad Bertsch will take place at the Cultural Centre Megaro Gyzi. Photographs of the artist from the neighborhood of Frangika or Catholika in Fira will be exhibited. Konrad Bertsch, by using the forms and colors of reality, conceives the form of the impressive landscape and the architecture of Santorini, which has escaped from the repercussions of modern built-up growth in the island. These compelling images offer visitors a different dimension in memory and time.

Curator of exhibition: Yannis Papaconstantinou, Artisric Director of Megaro Gyzi 
Opening of exhibition: Friday 27th August 2010, 21:00
Duration of exhibition: 27/8 - 25/9/2010

Konrad Bertsch

Konrad Bertsch was born in 1940 in Stuttgart, Germany. He finished his academic studies of Fine Art in Berlin and he obtained the Master΄s degree. His artistic development began as a student of Fine Art in Berlin. During his work as a professional artist he took a teaching post-graduate and taught art to high school and university students.

His career change to advertisement introduced him to photography, essential for product presentation. He found the medium practical and malleable, ideal for his vision of form using the shapes and colors of reality. His photographic artwork captures the quality of form in Santorini΄s impressionable landscape and architecture. Konrad has lived in Santorini for many years. He has seen the island change following the damage caused by the earthquake and the impact of modern development.

He is co-founder of "Scolio2", a cultural circle at his house, in Finikia of Ia, Santorini, as part of his workshop and as exhibition space for artists working in Santorini.

He is working as free artist. In the latest years he prefers to work in photographic projects. 


The European Festivals Association (EFA) has been uniting distinguished music, dance, theatre and multidisciplinary arts festivals from Europe and beyond for more than 60 years.Thanks to EFA’s history and the continuous support of its members, EFA was chosen to implement the pilot project EFFE by the European Commission.

                The first of EFFE’s initiatives is a quality label. This label is given to festivals with an artistic commitment, involvement in their local communities and a European and global outlook.

                Gyzi Megaron Festival has been selected to receive the EFFE Label 2015-2016. It is now part of the EFFE Platform, initiated by the European Festivals Association, which consists of festivals that stand for artistic quality and have a significant impact on the local, national and international level. The Label recipients represent 31 European countries and offer a wide range of genres and activities to their audiences.

2016 has been defined as Greece’s Year in Russia and Russia’s Year in Greece, by an agreement formed as a joint statement, signed by the two countries in October 2013.

                This year aims to build useful partnerships of mutual benefit with substantial development in both countries’ cultural, scientific, business and social relations, expanding Greek accessibility in Russian society, especially the province, opening up new areas of cultural, scientific, academic and business cooperation, and seeking new markets for tourism, Greek products and Greek innovative productivity.
