Press Release

The book Contemplations of a Collector | Irini Pari in Conversation with Dimitris Daskalopoulos was presented at the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens (EMST), with Katerina Gregos, Artistic Director of EMST, moderating a talk between the author Irini Pari and the collector Dimitris Daskalopoulos.

The book is a dialogue about art and life between two partners and art lovers: collector Dimitris Daskalopoulos and Irini Pari. Starting from the D.Daskalopoulos Collection – about a hundred works of contemporary art by international artists from the past 40 years – the collector and his partner discuss the freedoms and limitations of collecting art, share the lure of artistic creativity, and take us on a contemplative journey through the existential mystery of life, as it is depicted in the artworks of the collection.

The idea for this book began with a conversation regarding the works of the Collection. Conversations dating back three years, gathered in notes, transcriptions, and recordings, have resulted in a structured text divided into thematic chapters.

The publication is available at the NEON Shop, at the National Museum of Contemporary art Athens (EMST), the Benaki Museum, the Museum of Cycladic Art and Amazon.
