Message from the Chairman and Vice-Chairman
It is with great emotion that we realise how our parents’ idea to set up a
benevolent foundation by way of celebrating the centenary of Credit Bank has
led, thirty years on, to a Foundation with such a rich activity.
This anniversary report was conceived to highlight the main achievements
of the Foundation as a sign of respect to the memory of its founders. Even
the most optimistic observer would find it hard to believe how the initial
donation of 20,000 shares of Credit Bank in 1979 would turn into 6,620,000
shares of Alpha Bank today, following additional donations and, mainly,
the Foundation’s participation in all subsequent share capital increases.
Similarly, who could imagine that the seven activities we supported in 1980,
according to that year’s Report, at a cost of GRD 2 million, or €110,000 in
today’s terms, would become 273 and €3,550,000 in 2008? Or that the total
amount distributed to over 3,500 activities to this day would be in excess of
€46,000,000?
These and other achievements it is now time to publicise, despite our strict
policy to the contrary. It is also time to thank the members of the Board for
their invaluable advice, as well as our erstwhile associates who supported us
from the outset. Special mention is due to Mr Demetrios P. Katsikis, Director
of the Foundation from its first day until 2002, and the few but important
associates of the Bank who supported it in the early years. To those as well
as to our current associates we extend our thanks for their unstinting efforts
and their ideas for the advancement of the Foundation. Thanks are also due to
the many donors, anonymous or otherwise, who have honoured us with over
2,000 donations and keep on supporting us, thus demonstrating in practice
their faith in the work we pursue.

Establishment
In 1979 Credit Bank, a private sector bank which commenced operations
in Kalamata, celebrated its 100th anniversary. On the occasion, a series
of commemorative events were held and a number of memorabilia were
produced, including the limited edition album The Banknotes of Greece from
1828 until the present day.
Thirty years later, Credit Bank has evolved into Alpha Bank and these
historical promotional ideas, imaginative and pioneering as they were at
the time, remain engraved in the memory of people who witnessed them
and attest to the Bank’s history and policy. However, the most significant
and long-standing legacy of Credit Bank’s centenary celebration is the
establishment of the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation. The initial idea for
the creation of a non-profit charitable foundation as an endowment to
commemorate the centenary belongs to the late Spyro J. Costopulo, the
Founder’s last surviving son and Chairman of the Bank. Spyro J. Costopulo
and his wife Eurydice each contributed 10,000 of the Bank’s shares to set
up the foundation which bears the name of the Bank’s founder, John F.
Costopoulos.

The donation of Spyro and Eurydice Costopulo was worth 32 million
drachmae at the time. At present, following further contributions in
shares by the departed Spyro Costopulo and by Yannis S. Costopoulos, but
especially through the Foundation’s participation in all subsequent share

capital increases of the Bank over the last thirty years, the Foundation
holds 6,620,000 Alpha Bank shares and ranks amongst the Bank’s major
shareholders (see Appendix: pp. 138-139).
Aim
“The aim of the Foundation is to contribute materially and morally using any
expedient means towards the advancement of culture, education and the arts
in Greece and to generally assist in welfare acts in such ways as by supporting
all kinds of cultural events, scientific, educational or other welfare projects or
programmes, by fostering all kinds of educational institutions and professional
training schools, museums, art galleries, libraries, etc.”
Article 2 of the Articles of Association
The Board of Trustees
The first Board of Trustees consisted of Spyro J. Costopulo, Chairman;
Yannis S. Costopoulos, Vice-Chairman and Secretary; Demetrios P.
Mantzounis, Treasurer; Anastasia S. Costopoulos; and Photios P.
Costopoulos, Trustees. Following the death of Spyro J. Costopulo on
22 June 1984, Yannis S. Costopoulos became Chairman, Anastasia
S. Costopoulos became Vice-Chairman and Secretary, and Professor
Constantinos D. Kerameus was elected Trustee.

The Staff
In its first years, the Foundation had very few operating expenses as
it did not employ any permanent staff. Demetrios Katsikis, then Head
of the Bank’s Financial Department, acted as Manager, assisted in his
bookkeeping and secretarial tasks by two employees of the Bank on a parttime basis.
Eventually, however, the desire to expand activities in a number of different areas generated, after some ten years, the need to employ full-time
staff. Thus, Katerina Koskina, Curator of the Foundation and of the Bank’s
Art Collection and currently Art Director, became the first member of staff.

THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
THE FOUNDATION, THEN AND NOW – AN INTRODUCTION
At present, Hector Verykios, Secretary of Alpha Bank’s Board of Directors,
acts as the Foundation’s Manager, upholding the tradition since its
establishment whereby the administrative management is assigned to
a high-ranking executive of the Bank. The Foundation currently has a
permanent paid staff of six, including the Art Director, an accountant, the
secretariat, and a messenger.
Movable assets
“The Foundation’s income, after the deduction of all expenses, is allocated by a
minimum of 40% to satisfy the purposes of the Foundation as per article 2 of
the present document, and by a minimum of 40% to investments in securities,
real estate property and other assets whose proceeds, in the Board of Trustees’
best judgement, would more comprehensively and expediently cater to the
purposes of the Foundation by enhancing its income.”
Article 9.3 of the Articles of Association
Thanks to the foresight exhibited by the Founders, who included the above
clause in the Articles of Association, the initial shares held in Credit Bank
(now Alpha Bank) do not constitute the Foundation’s sole assets. As of
1982, part of the income has been invested in the shares of other listed
companies and in fixed income bonds such as the purchase of a 1,000,000
drachmae bond issued by the Hellenic Bank for Industrial Development
(ETBA)! Through the consistently prudent investment policy invariably
pursued by the Board of Trustees, the Foundation currently holds a
portfolio in shares and bonds which ensures its robust course and further
growth (see Appendix: pp. 140-141).
Premises
As one might have expected, in the early years, the Foundation’s offices
were accommodated in leased Bank premises, initially at 40 Stadiou Street,
then at 43 Panepistimiou Street and eventually at 41 Panepistimiou Street.
In 2004, the Board of Trustees decided to proceed to the acquisition of
a listed building within the Lemos Center office complex on the corner
of Karneadou Street and Ploutarchou Street in the area of Kolonaki.

THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
THE FOUNDATION, THEN AND NOW – AN INTRODUCTION
In February 2008, when the Bank’s lease of the building expired,
the Foundation relocated to its new premises, once the residence of
archaeologist Carl Blegen.
Donors
Following the initial contribution by Spyro and Eurydice Costopulo, the
Foundation has continuously been receiving anonymous and eponymous
donations of both small and large amounts by people who support its
purposes. An exceptionally interesting and outstanding one came in
1982 from an anonymous donor in memory of the Lady of Ro, Despoina
Achladioti, who had been running up the Greek flag on this borderline
island over 40 years (from 1943 until her death). This reference to donors
to our Foundation gives us the opportunity to express our gratitude to all
those who have upheld our activities and have actively supported us in our
thirty years of operation, with over 2,000 donations (please refer to list on
page 147 of the present volume).
Activities
A review of sponsored activities and of the amounts spent for the purposes
of the Foundation allows us to draw some conclusions on its course and
history. The guidelines were laid in the first few years and were then
extended and expanded through time. The Foundation initially set out to
pay homage to our national, regional and family roots, which accounts
for the support it extended, from its early days, to museums, excavation
and restoration works throughout Greece and to cultural and educational
programmes, especially in Kalamata. Its fields of operations would soon
expand to cover research and the support of welfare associations whose
activities focus on vulnerable groups or on creative employment and
training options. By the end of the initial ten year period of its existence,
the Foundation had embarked on its first actions to support the arts and
the environment.
The Foundation’s identity and fields of activities to this day were
determined in the 90s, with a marked turn to the fine arts, the preservation
of our cultural heritage and its promotion in Greece and abroad. Crowning
these efforts was the Foundation’s active involvement in the visual arts,
the sole area to this day where the Foundation organises its own events.

THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
THE FOUNDATION, THEN AND NOW – AN INTRODUCTION
A milestone in the Foundation’s second decade was its participation in
the operation of a model nursery school in Kalamata, initially conceived
as its contribution to the reconstruction of the town after the disastrous
earthquake that smote the area. The consolidation of the Foundation’s
activities in the mid-90s allows it to focus on the enhancement of its
financial resources rather than on further expanding its well-established
line of activities.
This publication aspires to provide a more extensive presentation of this
brief description. In the course of 30 years, the Foundation has provided
support to a multitude of actions that could not be mentioned exhaustively
on these pages, with approximately 3,500 instances involving over 1,200
beneficiaries. In 1980, the first year of our operation, we provided support
to seven beneficiaries, a number which, in 2008, had grown to 273!1
In order to facilitate a better understanding of the Foundation’s purposes
as outlined under its Articles of Association, in an effort to provide a
panorama of the initiatives which received our financial support, we
have divided this presentation into five chapters: Cultural Heritage and
Tradition, Contribution to Society, Science and Research, Education and
Studies, and Arts. The seventh chapter relates to the organisation of
significant art exhibitions and events the Foundation undertook alone or as
co-producer in the course of the last fifteen years, in which it takes great
pride.
We are aware we may have omitted some notable actions in this narrative
but feel confident that the reader will appreciate the limitations imposed
by a concise, practical and, we believe, interesting approach to this
publication. We hope also that the reader will agree with the conclusion
of Professor Angelos Delivorrias, Director of the Benaki Museum, that our
Foundation “promotes a concrete view about the content of the concept
of culture, which it does not approach in its individual constituents or
according to temporary fads”.

THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
THE FOUNDATION, THEN AND NOW – AN INTRODUCTION
THE CARL BLEGEN RESIDENCE
The building at the corner of
Ploutarchou and Karneadou St,
at the foot of Mount Lycabettus,
was built in 1895-96 for Nikolaos
Sardis on land which belonged
initially to the Petrakis Monastery.
Three years after its completion it
was sold by the original owner to
army officer Richardos Karamalikis,
and in 1917 it was bought by the
merchant brothers Gerasimos and
Georgios Raftopoulos, who sold it
in turn to Elizabeth Blegen in 1929.
Since then, and until recently,
the neoclassical building formed
part of the lives of two prominent
American archaeologists, Carl
Blegen and Bert Hill, and their
wives Elizabeth Blegen and Ida
Hill, also archaeologists.
Carl Blegen (1887-1971), whose
scientific eminence and radiant
personality are internationally
recognised, systematically
excavated numerous prehistoric
sites until 1927, initially as a
member of the American School
of Classical Studies and later as its
Secretary and Director. These sites
include Korakou, Gonia, Zygouries,
Nemea, Prosymna in northeastern
Peloponnese and Colophon in
Asia Minor. After 1927, and for
thirty years, he taught as Professor
Titular of the Chair of Classical
20
1
Archaeology at the University of
Cincinnati. During that time, he
carried out his major excavations,
on the Hissarlik Hill in Troy and the
palace of Nestor in Pylos. The study
of the Linear-B tablets found in
Pylos became the scientific basis for
the research into the origins of the
Greek language.
The famous residents’ stay at the
villa and their contribution to
the world of Greek archaeology
culminated in 1963, when
Elizabeth Blegen donated the
house and its furniture to the
American School. In 1973, after
the Blegens had died and as the
School faced financial problems,
the property was sold to Basil and
Elise Goulandris. In 1988, it was
bought by Markos Lemos, who
erected in the plot the shop and
office building known as the Lemos

International Center (LIC). Already
by that time, following the State’s
intervention, the Blegen residence
had been declared a listed building
in 1983 as “a work of art in need of
special protection”, according to the
final opinion by the Central Council
for Modern Monuments.
Alpha Bank purchased the
building in 1991. Following the
refurbishment of the interior
under the supervision of architect
Konstantinos Manouilidis and the
restoration of the ceiling paintings
revealed during the process,
the building housed the Private
Banking Division of Alpha Bank
until 2007. Meanwhile, in 2004 it
had become the property of the J.
F. Costopoulos Foundation, which
moved into it in 2008.

CULTURAL HERITAGE
AND TRADITION
Under this heading we have brought together all of the Foundation’s
activities which aim to secure the restoration of monuments, and to
preserve and promote Greek civilisation. Since this category contains
projects and actions meant to safeguard our cultural heritage and identity,
it may seem that we support activities which are inhomogeneous, if not
downright disparate. This is because we have listed programmes which
cover our entire culture from Antiquity to this day, through the work
conducted at such varied places and institutions as museums, libraries,
societies, monuments, archaeological sites and excavations.
Moreover, given our conviction that culture is found not only in grandiose,
impressive achievements but also in folk expression, tradition and everyday
life, this category includes support to the activities of regional societies,
museums and folklore collections as well as churches, monasteries and
Byzantine monuments associated with the traditional, religious, literary
and artistic expression of our recent history.
A good example of the Foundation’s activities is the Popular Library of
Kalamata, which we have supported continuously since our first year of
operation. The Library, which holds some 100,000 volumes and a host of
rare periodicals and newspapers, is a compound organisation as it runs as
one of its departments the Gallery of Contemporary Greek Art. The Gallery
was further enriched with donations by Anastasia Costopoulos as well as
with the bequest of a great number of works by Daphne S. Costopoulos,
daughter of Stavros and Danae Costopoulos. Our continuing support to
the Popular Library and Contemporary Greek Art Gallery of Kalamata has
enabled it to modernise its technical equipment.

building), the Spyros and

There are also several other libraries we have supported throughout
the country. One indicative example is the Kaireios Library in Andros.
In addition to preserving and running the Library, Kaireios has issued
publications which we supported and has restored the Agadakis Castle in
the village of Apatouria, Andros, which includes a conference/seminar
room and a permanent exhibition of preindustrial agricultural objects.

CULTUR AL HERITAGE & TR ADITION
The collaboration with museums dedicated to preserving and showcasing
our civilisation covers the entire spectrum of the Foundation’s interests
and appears in almost all chapters of this publication. Our earliest and
most characteristic relationship is with the Benaki Museum. Our ways
of supporting the Museum include the purchase of books for its Library,
the acquisition of exhibits such as the portraits of Athanasios Diakos and
Odysseas Androutsos, the restoration of icons, the funding of its research
project at the Sanctuary of Amyklaion near Sparta and the creation of a
hall for periodic exhibitions at the Main Building on Koumbari Street;
the hall is named after our founders, Spyro and Eurydice Costopulo.
After the renovated Main Building was reopened and the new building on
Pireos Street began to operate, the Foundation has supported many of the
Museum’s exhibitions and the publication of accompanying catalogues.

Considerable support was extended also to the Historical and Ethnological
Society of Greece – National Historical Museum. The Foundation, at
the Society’s request, purchased and donated to the Museum various
items which cannot be listed in detail in this volume; indicatively as to
the variety of the exhibits we could mention an oil painting about the
Venetians’ offensive to recapture the castles of Preveza and Vonitsa in
1717 under Count J. Β. M. Schulenburg, the oil painting under the title
Setting fire to a Turkish ship by N. Volanakis, a yatagan of Constantinos
Canaris, a golden bracelet of Queen Amalia decorated with a miniature of
King Otto, and a knife given by Eleftherios Venizelos to Nikolaos Plastiras.
The Foundation has provided similar, albeit smaller, support to many
other museums as well, among which the Byzantine Museums of Athens
and Thessaloniki, the Museum for the Macedonian Struggle, the Museum
of the City of Athens, the National Gallery and Alexandros Soutzos
Museum and the National Museum of Contemporary Art for the purpose of
augmenting their collections.
Given the importance we ascribe to the preservation and restoration of
national costumes and other traditional artefacts as part of our cultural
identity and heritage, we support many folklore museums around Greece,
from Thrace to Crete and the Aegean and Ionian islands.
In a country so closely associated with the sea, we would naturally support
maritime museums and projects promoting the Greek maritime tradition;
we shall refer solely to some original undertakings to which the J. F.

Costopoulos Foundation has provided financial aid. The first was the
restoration by the Aegean Maritime Museum of S/S Thales Milissios, the
ship which installed the underwater telephone cables in Greece during
the twentieth century. The second one concerned the construction by the
Maritime Museum of Crete of a replica of a Minoan boat which sailed
from Chania to Piraeus in 2004. A third initiative by the Historical
Archives-Museum of Hydra was about the purchase and the study for
the restoration of Eleni P., a historical wooden cargo boat; the project is
still under way. A fourth initiative was our support to the Prikonnisiakos
Sindesmos for the construction of a replica of the traditional rowing boat
Santala of Marmara.
Outside Greece, the Foundation has helped in the renovation of museum
halls with Greek and Roman collections, as in the Fitzwilliam Museum of
the University of Cambridge or the relocation and rearrangement of the
ancient collections of Newcastle University, England. Among the projects
which combine elements from several categories of our activities are the
Greek translation of the educational leaflets in the Louvre halls of Greek,
Roman and Etruscan art and a CD with the Cypriot antiquities in the
Cesnola Collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In a
similar spirit, we helped in the construction of special showcases for the
Museum of Antiquities in the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina, while in the
Holy Monastery of St. Catherine at Mount Sinai we worked together with
the A. G. Leventis Foundation to support the conversion of the Treasury
into a Museum of the latest specifications. Moreover, together with the A.
G. Leventis Foundation and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation we covered
the costs of the exhibition Byzantium 330-1453, a collaboration between
the Royal Academy of Arts in London and the Benaki Museum in Athens,
shown in the Main Galleries of the Royal Academy of Arts, London in
2008-2009. According to the Royal Academy of Arts, the sponsorship
guaranteed that “the curators were able to represent the Byzantine Empire
in all its splendour presenting a unique opportunity for the British and
international public to admire and understand the art and culture of the
Byzantine Empire in hitherto unrealized magnificence”.
Given their long history, many monasteries possess valuable treasures
which require maintenance, and the Foundation often comes to their aid.
The Holy Monastery of Koutloumousion on Mount Athos was helped to
restore the valuable manuscripts in its library, as was the Holy Monastery
of Saint John the Theologian on the island of Patmos, on the occasion of

also the restoration of the Holy Kathisma of Saint Christodoulos.

In most cases our support to the Church does not have to do with its
spiritual mission. The one exception was a possibly unique example
of resourcefulness displayed by the Holy Metropolis of Dryinoupolis,
Pogoniani and Konitsa in the 1980s, before the opening of the GreekAlbanian border, when it tried to meet the religious needs of the
inhabitants of Northern Epirus and, among other things, resorted to
transmitting the religious service via loudspeakers installed on Greek soil!
Upon the restoration of the Orthodox Autocephalous Church of Albania,
the Foundation’s donations initially went towards rebuilding the
infrastructure—repairing the few remaining churches and building new
ones, training clergy, developing programmes for the young (camps, youth
centres)—and, after the year 2000, towards education, by supporting the
Theological Academy, the Greek-Albanian Elementary School of Durres
and the Mesopotam Technical School near Sarande, always under the
auspices of Archbishop Anastasios.
We opt to support the work of Metropoles in the most remote areas of
Greece, such as in Thrace and the Dodecanese. Outside Greece, we have
provided financial aid to Metropoles under the Patriarchates of Jerusalem,
Alexandria and All Africa for their missionary work, and to Metropoles
under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople for the restoration of
relics and Byzantine churches under their jurisdiction.

Among the projects of restoring Byzantine relics we have supported since
1991 was the restoration of the major collection of religious icons in the
Patriarchate of Alexandria, under the supervision of Professor and Member
of the Athens Academy Panayotis Vocotopoulos. Another project that was
approved concerned the restoration of Byzantine and post-Byzantine icons
from the Emilios Velimezis Collection. One of the frequent requests we get
regarding the maintenance of Byzantine monuments led to the project of
excavating, restoring and refurbishing, again under Prof. Vocotopoulos, the
Byzantine monastery of Pantanassa at Philippias, whose church is one of
the largest and most opulent examples of the late Byzantine era to survive
in Greece.
In the area of projects concerning the pre-Christian period, in which
our history is particularly rich, the Foundation has supported numerous

excavations in caves, prehistoric and historic monuments in Greece and

only five which we consider to be of national importance, starting in
chronological order from Greece and ending abroad:
Mycenae: The Foundation supported from the start the initiative of the
Archaeological Society in Athens to publish a study of the finds from
fifty years of excavations at Mycenae, together with the excavation
logs and all attendant records. The overall project is supervised by
Professor and Member of the Athens Academy Spyros Iakovides, who has
excavated the site over the past five decades and since 1988 has directed
the continuation of the excavation. As Prof. Iakovides explains, “this
sponsorship has greatly facilitated the progress of the programme for
the publication of the excavation project at Mycenae”. That programme
involved a full and detailed topographical survey of the acropolis of
Mycenae by crews from the National Technical University, the description
of over twenty buildings within and outside the acropolis and the
cataloguing, description and photographing of all stratified finds, including
some 200,000 sherds found during the excavations. The findings of
the study have led to the safer and more accurate dating of the years
of prosperity and decline in the acropolis, the gradual shrinking of the
palatial economy and the changing uses of the various spaces. According
to Prof. Iakovides “these publications will lead to conclusions about the
historical course of Mycenae”.
Ancient Messene: The Foundation began to support the excavations
carried out by Professor Petros Themelis in 1986 and continued to do
so for twenty-one years. According to Prof. Themelis, “the Foundation
contributed greatly to the restoration and the opening to the public
of monuments which were not included in the CULTURE operational
programme of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism”. The completed
operations include: restoration and consolidation works on the rectangular
tower no. 17 situated to the northeast of the Arcadian Gate, one of the
best-preserved towers along the impressive fortifications; restoration of
the four-column, Doric Propylon—the monumental gate which leads to the
western arcade of the Gymnasium and thence to the Stadium; restoration
of the Κ3 burial monument in the western arcade of the Gymnasium;
restoration of the Fountain of Arsinoe; restoration of the Doric temple in
the Agora; restoration of the Thesaurus in the Agora; refurbishment of the
Basilica; restoration of the burial monument to the east of the Asclepius

sanctuary. Additionally, restoration work was carried out on the statue of
Hermes on display at the Museum within the site, and two vehicles were
purchased to meet the needs of the restoration and excavation works. The
completion of these tasks helps and promotes the excavation, restoration
and museological work on Ancient Messene.

Choregic monument of Thrasyllos: The Foundation has been funding the
reconstruction of major parts from the frieze of the choregic monument
of Thrasyllos on the southern slope of the Acropolis of Athens. The
overall programme is headed by Professor Alexander Mantis, supervised
by the Committee for the Investigation, Consolidation, Restoration
and Enhancement of the Theatre and Sanctuary of Dionysos and the
Asclepieion and is funded in part by the 3rd Community Support
Framework of the EU. Prof. Mantis explains that “this special choregic
monument was preserved in its place until 1827, when it was bombed and
ruined during the War of Independence. The study for its restoration was
aimed at collecting and processing data, which came to support the idea of
attempting the partial restoration of what has been an outstanding element
in the historical landscape of the Acropolis for over twenty-two centuries.
[…] The Foundation’s involvement concerns a total of eight stones,
which is an important number. These are parts from prominent areas
on the façade of the building”. The necessary additional funding by the
Foundation helps restore a prominent element in the historical landscape
of the Acropolis and symbolically links through the centuries the ancient
sponsorship of Thrasyllos with the contemporary one from the Foundation.

Hellenic Institute of Marine Archaeology: the long collaboration between
the Institute and the Foundation started in 1989, when we helped with the
excavation of one of the most important ancient shipwrecks near the island
of Dokos in the Argolic Gulf. Other large-scale underwater excavations
of prehistoric and historic cargo ships were also supported throughout
the 1990s at Cape Iria-Argolida; Antidragonera-Kythera and from 2000
to this day at locations in the Pagasetic, Saronic and South Evoikos Gulfs.
As professor Yannos Lolos explains, “the study of the world’s oldest
known shipwreck near the island of Dokos (2200 BC) was carried out in
1989-1992 and was a milestone for Greek marine archaeology and in the
history of the Institute of Marine Archaeology, after which the Institute
made great progress in research, publishing and education, while gaining
international recognition and prestige. The J. F. Costopoulos Foundation
supported this drive from the outset; the Foundation’s support to more

major projects over the years has been instrumental in promoting marine
archaeology in our country”.
Hellenic Institute of Ancient and Medieval Alexandrian Studies: The Institute has obtained a license from the Egyptian authorities to carry out
marine archaeological research on the eastern coast of Alexandria. Since
2001, the Foundation has supported, at first exclusively and ever since
continuously, these excavations which have provided a wealth of evidence
on the ancient city’s history and topography, and their finds are now on
show at the archaeological museum of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which
has also been supported by the Foundation. Professor Harry Tzalas points
out that the findings from twelve years of excavations are “impressive in
number and volume as well as in terms of the new evidence they add to
the history and the topography of the great city of Ptolemaic, Roman and
Islamic times”. The Greek archaeological delegation with its constant presence has earned an equal place next to its two major French counterparts.
Ancient Greek and Byzantine antiquities are often shown in temporary
exhibitions in Greek and foreign museums. We have already mentioned
the exhibition on Byzantium at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. We
were also among the foundations and companies which supported the
exhibition Byzantium: Faith and Power (1261-1557) at the Metropolitan
Museum of Art in New York in 2004. The exhibition, as MET Director Dr
Thomas Campbell reminds us, was seen as one of that year’s top events,
and its catalogue received two major art-history awards in the United
States. In association with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation we supported
the exhibition Athos, hosted at the Helsinki City Art Museum in 2006, and
the exhibition Eros: From Hesiod’s Theogony to Late Antiquity at the Museum
of Cycladic Art in 2009. Special mention is due to our collaboration with
the Musée du Louvre in the publication of the catalogue for the Praxiteles
exhibition which then travelled to the National Archaeological Museum of
Athens in 2007.
We have supported also the Association for the Safeguard of Cultural
Heritage of Cephalonia-Ithaca for the publication of a historical study
on the Homeric Ithaca which was graciously distributed to schools and
libraries on the two islands. The same Association initiated the acquisition
and exhibition on Cephalonia of 152 works by the Greek-American artist
Gerasimos Steris, whose family came from the island.

In the same vein, the Foundation supports publications of scientific,
historical and research, but little commercial, interest. These include the
two-volume collection of 35 papers by archaeologist Ioulia Vocotopoulos
in 2001; the Mount Athos Centre’s 2008 album: Mount Athos. Panayotis L.

Alexandros Papageorgiou-Venetas: Eduard Schaubert (1804-1860). A
Collection of documents on the planning of Athens and Piraeus (1998) and

Greece: 1720-1940 (1992) and Twelve Greek Architects of the Interwar Period
(Distinguished Greek Architects of the 20th Century) (1999). Our support to
the Society for the Study of Greek History has helped to produce or reprint
many historical publications. Equally, we have repeatedly supported the
Society for Macedonian Studies.
Our funding activities have included the translation of classical texts
into Modern Greek. The most recent examples are the translations of the
seven extant tragedies of Aeschylus and the other seven extant tragedies
of Sophocles by journalist and writer Andreas Zoulas in 2007 and
2008, respectively, and the translation of the Iliad by Professor Dimitris
Maronitis in 2009.
Finally, reference must be made to the Greek Font Society, which keeps
a variety of digital fonts in polytonic Greek consisting of both historical
examples and new designs in keeping with our typographical tradition.

CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY
It is evident that all activities of the Foundation concern society as a whole
and usually aim at the dissemination of intellectual wealth. However,
some of the initiatives we have supported over the years have been about
providing material help to sensitive groups of people or about protecting
the fauna and flora of our country and the region.
Specifically, in the context of our long-term relationship with Cerebral
Palsy Greece, the Society has provided grants for its members’ training
in special education or speech therapy. More importantly, perhaps, it has
organised two highly successful Performing Art and Experiential Seminars
which brought together over 250 young people from Greece and abroad,
with or without disabilities, in a creative combination of dance, theatre,
music and visual art.
Wishing to promote the social rehabilitation and reintegration of children,
adolescents and young adults with serious psychosocial problems such
as mental illness, mental retardation and their attendant difficulties, we
supported the Association for the Psychosocial Health of Children and
Adolescents in setting up its second Community Home. The Home hosts
eight to ten adolescents and youths five days a week, so as to ensure a
homelike atmosphere and setting and to encourage the families to have
them back with them over the weekends.

Similar aid has been provided over the years to many associations
dedicated to socially vulnerable groups in Attica and beyond. In a
combination of social contribution and education, the Foundation supports
professional training schemes for the disabled as well as production
units in the form of workshops. The most recent examples from the last
two years include the Parents and Friends’ Association for the Mentally
Retarded Aghios Nikolaos, the Theotokos Foundation, the Recreation Centre
for Occupying Mentally Retarded Children Parent and Guardian Board
Aghios Panteleimon, the Saint Demetrius Children’s Care and Welfare Centre,
the Society of Parents, Guardians and Friends of People with Mental
Disabilities Ergastiri, the Association of the Parents-Guardians and Friends
of Autistic Children S.O.S., the Society for the Protection of Disabled
People of Karystos and the Association of the Parents-Guardians and
Friends of Autistics in Evros Aghios Vassileios.
45
THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
This indicative list demonstrates the great range of needs and our inability
to support all the worthy causes submitted to us. However, we shall stop
at just two more projects we were able to support. The first one is that
of the Heliotropio Social and Environmental Action Society which, as part
of its educational programmes, produces special educational material to
promote the direct, experiential perception of nature for children with
visual problems. According to the Society itself, these programmes “are
designed to prevent the marginalisation of people with disabilities and
reinforce their personality, to raise environmental awareness and to
promote a change of attitudes towards disability. We have made a series
of models and educational toys which contribute to experiential learning,
and we have carried out a series of events which brought together
children with and without disabilities”. The second undertaking, of a more
recreational nature, is addressed to children in hospitals and child care
institutions, to whom the New Art Scene of the Theatre of Neos Kosmos
gives theatrical performances; indeed, the actors sometimes happened to
perform before just one child.
Social initiatives are based primarily on volunteerism, the spirit of which
has been traditionally promoted in our country by the Boy and Girl Scouts
(Soma Hellinon Proskopon-Scouts of Greece) and the Greek Guiding
Association, two organisations which our Foundation has supported over
a long time. Since 1994 we have added Elix, Conservation Volunteers
Greece, a Non Governmental Organisation which promotes volunteerism
and organises volunteer work programmes for youths from all over the
world. These programmes are about contributing volunteer work for
worthy community projects in collaboration with local associations,
environmental organisations and societies which decide upon the project
and provide hospitality to the volunteers. Elix has already organised over
300 projects in 104 communities around Greece, with the participation of
more than 6,200 young people.
In the area of environmental protection, the Foundation has been
associated for more than 25 years with the Philodassiki Enossi Athinon,
which has undertaken repeated drives for reforestation in Attica and
elsewhere, and promotes public awareness through its magazine Fysi kai
Zoi. Another long and regular association is with the Hellenic Society for
the Protection of Nature; in the last ten years the Society, as the Greek
representative of the Foundation for Environmental Education-FEE, has
been using the Foundation’s donation to run the International Programme

Eco-Schools which aims to promote environmental awareness, education
and changing attitudes of students in matters relating to the environment.
According to the Society, the “Eco-Schools Programme encourages children
to participate in the decision-making, the design and the implementation
of actions aimed at environmental protection”. Our Foundation also
supported the Society’s initiative to collect and publish the articles written
by Myrto Apergi for the magazine I Fysi in a single volume under the title
Experiences from Greek Nature.
Another crucial contribution was to the early education programmes of
the Gaia Centre of the Goulandris Natural History Museum, which were
designed in collaboration with the Natural History Museum of London
and aimed at awakening the visitor’s environmental awareness. Again in
the area of environmental issues we must include our contribution to the
Third International Environmental Symposium The Danube-A Network for a
Living River, held in October, 1999 under the auspices of His All Holiness
the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. The Symposium highlighted the
problems in the ecosystem of the river Danube as a result of pollution,
overexploitation and destruction from the then-recent war in Yugoslavia.
Many societies deal with animal protection, given the urgent need to
rescue the most specific species threatened with extinction. One of those
we have often supported is the Association of Ecologists of Hydra, which
started by protecting the traditional character of the island of Hydra and
later made a key goal of protecting the marine environment of the eastern
Peloponnese and the Saronic Gulf. Other societies we have supported
include the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece Archelon; the Arcturos
Environmental Centre for wildlife and environmental protection, mainly
on Mount Pindos; the Silva Project for the preservation of the small
Skyrian poneys; and the Hellenic Wildlife Hospital on Aegina, which
has treated thousands of wild animals, most of which are from species
protected by national and EU legislation.
In our country, all the institutions which deal with the protection of
nature and the environment have also undertaken to educate and increase
the public’s awareness, such as the Greek Society for Environmental
Information and Education, which we have supported repeatedly. The
title of the society condenses the entire problem of Greece in this area and
brings us to the following chapters, which deal in more detail with our
activities in Research and Education.

SCIENCE AND RESEARCH
The funding of research and the support of science have been central to
the activities of the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, since there can be no
civilisation without these two elements.
Several scholars have been able to continue or complete their research
thanks to the Foundation’s aid. Space and the character of this publication
does not permit a detailed reference to all of those individuals, whose
names are listed in the Appendix. One example which reflects the
Foundation’s approach in the cases of individual scholars is that of the late
Eleni Koukkou, Professor at the University of Athens, who devoted her
research to the life and work of Ioannis Kapodistrias. Unfortunately, due to
her death, the research remains incomplete and therefore has not yet been
published.
It is our aim to focus mostly on collective research projects, preferably
through established educational institutions. One example is the scientific
team from the University of Athens which studied the Antikythera
Mechanism in collaboration with international experts; the team, which is
not the only one studying the Mechanism, was able to upgrade its technical
equipment and present its latest findings in conferences and exhibitions in
Greece and abroad. Similarly—and exceptionally, since this is not directly
relevant to our aims—we sponsored the purchase of equipment by the
Biomedical Research Foundation of the Athens Academy.
We have frequently supported research via the National Hellenic Research
Foundation and specifically the Institute for Neohellenic Research. Recent
examples include the Seminars at Hermoupolis of 2006, the digitisation
of the Ergography of Modern Greek Historiography and the Bibliography
of the History of Historiography (15th-20th c.), two research missions to
southern Russia for the study of the Greek contribution to the development
of the port towns in the Azov Region (19th & early 20th c.) and the
reprint of Greek Painters after the Fall of Constantinople (1450-1830) by the
Byzantinologist and Member of the Athens Academy Manolis Chatzidakis.

The advent of new technologies has led many institutions to seek the
resources to digitise their archives. One undertaking of international

scientific interest was our contribution to the digital restitution of the
Codex Sinaiticus. Under the auspices of the British Library, the manuscript
of the Codex was put together from three fragments which were kept in
different libraries, as part of a long-term project for the authentication,
preservation, transcription and eventual digitisation of the Codex. Among
other digitising projects is that of the Archives of the Patriarchate of
Constantinople, undertaken by the Research Committee of the Aristotle
University of Thessaloniki. The wealth of the archive and the importance
of the project becomes evident when we consider that during the
systematic phase of 1998-2004 the experts digitised approximately one
million pages. Another example is the digitisation of the student registers
of the Hill School since the 19th century.
1
Science is also promoted through congresses, a field in which the
Foundation has been consistently active in its thirty-year history.
One indicative example is the congress on The Fourth Crusade and its
Consequences under the auspices of the Athens Academy in 2004, upon
the 800th anniversary from the Fall of Constantinople to the Crusaders in
1204.
The broader field of research includes also scientific journals specialising
in specific areas, such as the magazines Mnemon of the Society for
the Study of New Hellenism; Historein. A review of the Past and Other
Stories of the Cultural and Intellectual History Society; Diotima, by the
Hellenic Society for Philosophical Studies; Peloponnesiaka, by the Society
for Peloponnesian Studies; Eranistès, by the Association D’ Études
des Lumières En Grèce; or The Numismatic Chronicles of the Hellenic
Numismatic Society. The editorial committees of all these periodicals
include researchers from all age groups who represent the scientific trends
of their time.
As a counterbalance to the support towards scientific periodicals, the
Foundation promotes also longer-term publishing projects which involve
the collaboration of specialists in various disciplines from around the
world. One example is the British Academy project for the Lexicon of
Greek Personal Names, headed by Professors P.M. Fraser and Ε. Matthews.
The project aims to collect and publish with documentation all known
ancient Greek personal names down to the sixth century A.D. as found in
inscriptions, manuscripts, coins and other artefacts of all kinds.

Another area of research concerns modern methods which arise from
the need to develop fresh approaches or revise the existing ones. One
such undertaking which our Foundation supports is the forthcoming
book by the Theatre Company Attis which describes, among other things,
Theodoros Terzopoulos’s Biodynamic Method—the product of many years
of research in the field of theatrical expression with particular emphasis on
ancient tragedy. The Foundation’s aid was used for organising the archive
material, digitising part of it, developing some 3,000 exercises and helping
the method to evolve.

The fusion between ancient drama and contemporary acting is also
the object of the Meetings for Young Artists organised annually by
the European Cultural Centre of Delphi and often supported by the
Foundation, in which distinguished actors and directors teach methods of
understanding and interpretation of ancient drama from all performing
arts, i.e. theatre, dance, music, new technologies, etc. We believe that in
addition to enriching the knowledge and experience of the participating
students from all approved schools in the country, this project promotes
research as such in a creative way.

EDUCATION AND STUDIES
The promotion of Education in the broader sense of the word is naturally
among the primary aims of the Foundation. In this chapter, it is firstly
worth noting the Foundation’s commitment to supporting the Efstathia J.
Costopoulos Foundation as regards the running expenses of the Yiayia’s
Garden Model Nursery School which the Costopoulos family established in
Kalamata.
Just as the inception of the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation is linked to a
major event for the Bank, the establishment of the Efstathia J. Costopoulos
Foundation is associated with the official opening of the Bank’s Main
Building on February 20, 1987; during the inauguration ceremony it
was announced that the family, the Bank and the Foundation intended
to contribute to the rebuilding of Kalamata following the earthquakes of
September, 1986 by donating a plot and building a model nursery school.
The Bank undertook to build and equip the nursery school on a plot
which formed part of the dowry of Efstathia J. Costopoulos and had been
inherited by Anastasia and Yannis S. Costopoulos. Since 1994, when the
nursery school began to operate, its operational expenses are covered by
the same three parties. At this point we should let Anastasia Costopoulos,
Vice-Chairman of the Foundation, relate the creation of Yiayia’s Garden:
Efstathia J. Costopoulos
Foundation, Yiayia’s
Garden Model Nursery
School.
56
“It was several months after the night of the earthquake in Kalamata in
September, 1986. The tears had dried and the image of our homeless fellow
citizens was beginning to fade. Everything had been organised more or less,
and we in Athens spent several evenings talking about what we could do for the
people of our ruined city from then on… Among the various plans formed in our
minds and hearts the word “nursery school” had come up; that was an initiative
which could go ahead only with the aid and contribution of friends and
specialists. So by the day my brother Yannis S. Costopoulos called me to sign
the articles of association for the nursery school, things were already under way.
The contract was about a creche to be built on a large section of the garden of
our grandmother Efstathia J. Costopoulos. It was going to be called “Yiayia’s
Garden”; the architectural design was to be offered by the architect Alexandros
Samaras, and the structural and mechanical designs by Victor Ampakoumkin
and Elias Cavoulakos, respectively. The in-situ architectural work was to be
undertaken by the architects Vilma Apostolaki and Giorgos Papaemmanouil, who
lived and worked in Kalamata.
57
THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
In any case our property—a strip of land with an orchard and a vegetable
garden and a small ground floor house on Aristomenous Street—had fallen
victim to the earthquake. Any kind of initiative was welcome but also to the
detriment of the old city, as the drive for reconstruction spelled the end for the
few remaining gardens; most of the old mansions had already been damaged
and blocks of flats rose one after the other. Now we had found the best possible
solution to trigger our memories from our childhood summers: half of the garden
was to be turned into a playground for the children, and the other half would
remain as an orchard for the pupils to take care of and learn some gardening.
The school was built, and many classes of various sizes were formed. Since then
I have been happily involved in the development of the nursery school, following
closely the various aspects and the requirements of its operation and making
some good friends in the process. The school, thanks to the dynamic contribution
of its current Head, Adriani Roussopoulou-Kallikouni, is now in great demand.
In addition to the pupils from poor families, every year we get more requests
than we can accommodate from parents anxious to enrol their children, and
we are forced to turn some of them down. It is an achievement which has been
embraced by the city and ties us even more closely to it. Besides, the obligations
we undertook towards this once hard-hit local community remain the same
and more.
The donation was made, and the fairytale stops here.”
Each year the Efstathia J. Costopoulos Foundation hosts toddlers and
preschool children from families with very low incomes or others who are
in temporary social or financial difficulties. Tuition and meals are provided
for free. The specially trained staff provides the everyday, child-centred
educational programme, offers additional individual or group classes in
music education and painting and organises many extra activities within
the school or in the city. Special attention is available for children whose
parental care is deemed insufficient, through the Afternoon Programme
which is hosted in a separate area with a homelike atmosphere.
In addition to the educational programme and the activities for children,
the school provides workshops for the education and training of parents,
through which unemployed parents discover and develop new skills,
express themselves creatively and gradually enter or re-enter the job
market. The school thus continues to support over time its former pupils—
over twelve hundred and fifty till now—and their families. All these
activities are constantly supported by a psychologist and a social worker.
Moreover, the process is under way for the creche to be licensed as a
kindergarten, which is now part of the obligatory education in our country.

THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
Our support to Education goes beyond this school and into the area of
scholarships, the endowment of university Chairs, the contributions for
organising scientific meetings and the provision of funds to specific
research projects.
It has been our constant concern from the outset to keep down our
operating costs. To this end, the Foundation did not develop a mechanism
for assessing scholarship applicants, opting instead to provide grants
through established organisations. For instance, we have a long working
relationship with the American Educational Foundation (Fulbright
Programme), we have supported the Princeton University Programme in
Hellenic Studies and we endowed the Hellenic Harvard Foundation when
it was set up. All these institutions select students to be awarded grants for
studies in the United States of America.
In Western Europe we have promoted Byzantine studies by awarding for
a number of years the Stavros J. Costopoulos scholarship of the University
of Oxford in this field, and also by supporting the scholarship programme
of the Institute for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies of the University
of Vienna, the Institute for Byzantine and Modern Greek Philology and
Byzantine Art History of the University of Munich and the Chair of Modern
Greek Studies of the Free University of Berlin. Similarly, in the early
1990s we endowed the Chair of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies
of the University of Oxford before providing support to its scholarship
programme, as stated above.
In Greece, one indicative example is the University of Crete, which we
supported with regard to a grant awarded by the Department of History
and Archaeology on the subject of Western Art. Another long association
is that with the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy
(ELIAMEP), with which we worked for the selection of five Greek
students who were supported throughout their studies at the newly-set
up Chair of Greek-Turkish Studies at Bilgi University of Istanbul. Another
project with ELIAMEP in recent years concerns the Stavros J. Costopoulos
research fellowship with a focus on international relations and European
integration; this introduced into the research of foreign policy in Greece a
practice which is tried and tested and quite widespread in Western Europe
and America and enables Greek scholars to seek professional advancement
beyond our national borders. Commenting on this research fellowship,
ELIAMEP adds that “it has served as a vehicle for promoting the
60
EDUCATION AND STUDIES
participation of Greece in the discourse among the international academic
community on issues around the progress and the future of European
integration. By attracting distinguished researchers with a long experience
abroad, it has contributed also to the upgrading and the advancement
of the research carried out in Greece”. Another move in the direction of
supporting young Greek scientists was that for a postdoctoral scholarship
at the Bologna Center of the Johns Hopkins University.
In addition to our long-running involvement to undertakings such
as the above there have been various instances of one-off support to
internationally renowned and highly symbolic Chairs of Greek studies.
Such cases include the Nikos Kazantzakis Chair of the Centre for Modern
Greek Studies at San Francisco State University and the Odysseus Elytis
Chair at Rutgers State University of New Jersey, as well as the National
Centre for Hellenic Studies and Research at La Trobe University in
Australia.
The will to learn and go deeper into one’s field is cultivated from a young
age, and the same is true of training in a profession. The Foundation has
therefore often supported secondary schools which foster the appropriate
spirit of enquiry or teach a profession under a scientific method. One of
these is the American Farm School in Thessaloniki, whose reputation
extends beyond the Greek borders as it caters for students from all
neighbouring countries. The Foundation has also taken special care of the
Zografeion Lyceum in Istanbul.
In recognition of the special value of libraries in the education process,
we have supported via the Council for Children’s and Adolescents’
Libraries the operating and expansion costs for three of its 28 Libraries in
Ermoupolis, Syros; Velvento, Kozani; and Myki, Xanthi.
Apart from schools and universities, the Foundation takes an interest in
the practical training in professional skills as provided by many societies;
prominent among these is the Girls Education Society, which has been
supported unfailingly since the Foundation’s establishment.
We shall end this chapter with a reference to an initiative undertaken
jointly with seven other Foundations: Eugenides, Lambrakis, A.G.Leventis,
Bodossaki, Stavros Niarchos, Alexander S. Onassis and the National
Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation. In the last four years these eight

foundations, including ours, have been working on the Education
and Development Initiative, with the aims of preparing a Study of
Employment for Graduates of Higher Education, developing a web-based
educational Game on the internet, providing educational and cultural
material for schools over the internet, preparing a Guide for Studies
(both undergraduate and postgraduate) and Employment and setting up a
Network of School Innovation. The first four aims have been attained; for
the fifth aim, which is also the main one, the Foundations are in talks with
the Hellenic Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs
so that they can hand over the project as it is now to be continued by the
Ministry.
Irrespective of its ultimate outcome, the Education and Development
Initiative has helped us to establish regular communication with similar
foundations with which we had already collaborated on occasion, as it has
been mentioned before, particularly in the area of supporting art projects.

ARTS
Over the years, the Foundation has linked its name with art exhibitions,
mainly retrospectives, for Greek or Greek-born artists of international
acclaim. This began in 1994, when the State Museums of Contemporary
Art in Athens and Thessaloniki had yet to be established and there were
no similar private museums, either. This activity is dealt with in the next
and final chapter of this Anniversary Report as the sole area of productive
action by the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation.
In this chapter we shall examine the various other artistic activities we
have supported and which have not been mentioned in other sections of
this presentation.
In the area of Music, the Foundation was one of the many benefactors who
contributed to the completion of the Athens Concert Hall (the Megaron).
Since then, we have supported the Megaron for various concerts, such as
those by the Philarmonia Orchestra of London in 1993 or those by the
pianist Apostolos Palios, whom we had supported for the completion of
his studies in Germany, Hara Iakovidou on the works of Nikos Skalkottas,
and Haris Vrontos for the dissemination of his music. The Foundation has
supported also the educational programmes of the Athens Concert Hall.
In the same field, we have supported the Greek National Opera in the
activities of its Chamber Orchestra, as well as major events outside Athens,
including our systematic support to the International Music Festivals
of Aegina and Paxos. We have been active also in the area of preserving
and issuing on CD the work of such eminent Greek composers as Nikos
Skalkottas, Dimitris Mitropoulos and Georgios Kasassoglou; one indicative
example is the successful production of a CD with works of Nikos
Skalkottas by Danae Kara. Moreover, we have promoted the work of such
contemporary Greek composers as Thanassis Moraitis, Vangelis Petsalis and
Efstathios Mavrommatis, who were supported to record their unpublished
works.

True to our principle of supporting not only classical and contemporary
music but also projects for the preservation of our customs and traditions,
we have provided regular aid to the Society for the Dissemination of

ARTS
National Music Simon Karas for the organisation of musical events, such
as the annual concert commemorating the 29th of May which has been
given continuously since 1930 or for the publication of books such as
Simon Karas’ manuscript entitled Anastasimatario. In the same vein we
have supported the Choir of Saint George Karytsis-Themistoclis Polykratis
and the Melpo Merlier Music Folklore Archive. We promote also musical
education through the activities of societies such as the Jeunesses
Musicales de Grèce, the Athens Choir and the local conservatoires and
philharmonic societies of the Ionian Islands.
In the field of dance, we have long supported the work of the Lyceum of
Hellenic Women, mainly in Kalamata but also in other cities in Greece
and abroad, and the Greek Dances-Dora Stratou Theatre for its shows
on the Filopappos Hill. Both organisations promote the preservation of
our traditions by studying, presenting and teaching dances from all over
Greece, reproducing traditional costumes and recording songs from various
regions of the country. It is worth noting that the costumes they preserve
are not mere museum pieces, but are used in the major productions on
Greek traditional themes they present annually in Greece and abroad.
Apart from traditional dances we have contributed to the presentation
in Greece of the avant-garde work of Greek or foreign choreographers.
The best known example, due to our long-standing donation from 1998
to 2009, is that of the Kalamata International Dance Festival, which has
become the top contemporary dance event in Greece and one of the major
dance events in Europe. The Festival has presented 74 foreign dance
groups, of which 53 appeared for the first time in Greece—among them
Merce Cunningham, Trisha Braun, Jan Fabre, Philippe Decouflé and Jérôme
Bel—as well as 30 Greek dance companies, including Zouzou Nikoloudi,
Dimitris Papaioannou and Konstantinos Rigos. It is worth noting that the
Foundation has supported the early years of contemporary dance groups
and contributed to this flourishing kind of art in the last fifteen years.
These groups include Oktana, Sine Qua Non and Edafos Dance Theatre,
from 1991 to 2003, whose performance Forever was choreographed by
D. Papaioannou before he was commissioned to prepare the Opening
Ceremony for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.
Similar support for more than three years has been extended also to other
contemporary dance companies such as the Contemporary Dance Group of
Persa Stamatopoulou, the Elix Dance Company, the State School of Dance
and the Zouka Dance Company.

ARTS
Equally important, although more numerous, are the subsidies in the area
of the Theatre. The Foundation aims to provide equal support to noncommercial productions from the field of classical repertory and ancient
drama and from that of contemporary and experimental theatre. We have
supported the avant-garde efforts of both young and established actors in
the productions of the theatre companies Morfes, Argo, Semio, Sfendoni,
Spring Theatre and Notos. All these companies were financially supported
for several years. Many young and active artists emerged through these
ventures, and some of them have stood out on the Greek scene.
Sometimes, the Foundation has supported initiatives which combine
theatrical productions with education. One indicative example is
the National Theatre’s Readings, which had started under the title
Analogio Festival and presented new plays by established as well as
younger playwrights. The Foundation’s support enabled the National
Theatre to activate a mechanism of more than 130 artists (100 actors
approximately and more than 30 other contributors), while the Theatre’s
entire production department helped throughout these activities, from
organisation and rehearsals to the final presentation.

Another type of initiative for special young audiences combines entertainment with charity work, such as that provided in hospitals by the New Art
Scene of the Theatre of Neos Kosmos and which the Foundation supports,
as we mentioned earlier. Another worthy case is that of the Greek Puppet
Theatre which has created the bulk of its artistic work during the 1990s.
Its productions are primarily addressed to children, but include adult audiences, too. Additionally, the Greek Puppet Theatre, aims to organise congresses and workshops on puppet construction and handling.

In addition to music, dance and theatre we have supported various activities regarding photography, such as the anniversary retrospective on the 20
years since the founding of the Photography Circle in the Benaki Museum,
and promoted growth in other, less developed areas of artistic expression
which employ new digital or audiovisual technology. This category includes a donation to t-SHORT, a non-profit company for the creation of a
database and a digital festival for the promotion of short films.

It is evident that the resources of a benevolent Foundation cannot extend
to major cinematic productions. Nevertheless, we support the production
of non-commercial films, short films, documentaries and experimentalcinema projects.
69
THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
ARTS
Our limited contributions in this field are often associated with actions
we support in other areas. For instance, we supported the production of
the documentary film The Journey and the Visual language of Jannis Kounellis
as part of his solo exhibition aboard the cargo vessel IONION, the film of
Tassos Rigopoulos on Lucas Samaras or the Portolanos Film documentary
about the National Garden. Moreover, certain of our donations into
research projects, publications or exhibitions of archaeological, Byzantine
or generally historical interest involved the production of short films which
we also supported. Indicative examples include The Hide, a documentary by
Vassilis Kosmopoulos about the actions taken in Greece during World War
II to conceal and preserve antiquities, or The Ring by Andreas Apostolidis,
which was accompanied by the exhibition History Lost, financially
supported by us, and later by a book with the same title. We supported
also the production of Macedonia, The Hellenistic Civilisation as far as Asia,
a film in which Photis Constantinidis presents Macedonia’s major historical
role in shaping civilisation in Europe and beyond, during the period
beginning with Alexander the Great and ending with Cleopatra, known as
Hellenistic, according to Johann Gustav Droysen. Likewise, we supported
the Notos Productions film Travelling in the Shadow of Byzantium, based on
William Dalrymple’s book From the Holy Mountain. A Journey in the Shadow
of Byzantium. Also worth mentioning is our contribution to the production
of The Journey: The Greek American Dream, a documentary film produced
by the Proteus non-profit organisation and directed by Maria Iliou about
Greek emigration to the USA from 1890 to 1980.
Our brief look into documentaries concludes with the productions of
Periplus, a company we have supported for its films Sinasos, Mediterranean
Stories – which is about customs around the harvesting of grapes, wheat
and olives in Greece, Turkey and Italy and shows the common threads
despite the different religions in these countries – Yannis Moralis, Log Books
– George Seferis and Meetings with Kiki Dimoula. The script and the directing
of the first four films were by Stelios Haralambopoulos and of the fifth by
Katerina Patroni. All these films obtained international awards. Aside from
our support to the production of short films and documentaries we must
mention also our aid to the Mediterranean Film Institute. It is one of the
most dynamic and successful European initiatives which operates under
the EU MEDIA programme and holds annual screenwriting seminars by
distinguished academics and professionals for mainly young screenwriters
and directors from Europe and the Mediterranean countries.

We shall close this reference to filmmaking with a few words about
directors whose work relates directly to the visual arts. Antouanetta
Angelidi was supported in 1995 for her much-awarded film The Hours
and in 2001 for the also prize winning Thief or Reality. We supported the
same filmmaker for the script of the film Medea / Kore, co-developed with
Rea Wallden and shown at the 6th Avant-garde Film Festival in 2009.
Katerina Thomadaki and Maria Klonari, who have always worked as a
team, received a grant for restoring and digitising their work which was
deemed to be part of the cultural heritage of France, the country in which
they work and teach. Similar support was given to Temenos, a non-profit
organisation formed to preserve the archive of Gregory J. Markopoulos and
fulfil his vision by using original material from 1947 to 1991, to produce
the film Eniaios—an 80-hour production in 22 cycles which include
mythical narratives, portraits of intellectuals and studies of archaeological
and architectural monuments. The first cycles were shown in 2004 and
2008 at Temenos, a locality near the village of Lyssarea, Arcadia.

Apart from the art exhibitions we have organised or co-organised, the
Foundation has helped contemporary artists to exhibit their work in Greece
and abroad or represent our country in international art events. This is
our most extensive activity in geographical terms, as we have supported
the Greek participation in the Biennales of Sao Paolo in 1987, 1989 and
1996, Venice in 1988, 1990, 1993, 1997, 1999, 2007 and 2009, Cetinje
in 1997 and 2002, Berlin and Sydney in 2004 and Alexandria and Ireland
in 2006. In 2007 we supported the organising of the Biennales of Athens
and Thessaloniki. The artists in these events include, among many others,
George Lappas, Thanassis Totsikas, Costas Varotsos, Vassiliki Tsekoura,
Nikos Alexiou, Bia Davou, Vangelis Vlachos, Dimitris Alithinos.

I am moved and happy by the fact that this note is written on the occasion
of the Foundation’s thirtieth anniversary. What I am about to write is about
the Foundation’s ‘inclination’ towards the presentation of the oeuvre of visual
artists; I might as well say ‘keel over’ instead of ‘inclination’, since it all started
aboard an old cargo vessel which was anchored in Piraeus sixteen years back
(1994).
From the inception of the Foundation to that day, I signed diligently the
Minutes of the Board Meetings according to the instructions of Mr D. Katsikis
as to where I should put my name. The content was rather indifferent to me, and
I asked no questions; I still preferred to paint at the time. Yet I did want us to
provide help to artists. The Foundation had begun to support art exhibitions as
well as the Greek delegations to Biennales. In 1991 I met Katerina Koskina, we
worked together and later she joined the Foundation.
During a visit to the Bernier/Eliades Gallery I was approached by Marina
Eliades who told me that she wanted to organise a major retrospective for Jannis
Kounellis and was wondering if the Foundation might be interested. Till then
we had supported through the Foundation some minor shows for certain artists,
but what Marina had in mind was a major undertaking. Kounellis, while born
in Greece, was an Italian citizen and was seen as an Italian painter of Greek
origin. Delighted with her proposal, I began to talk to people in order to decide
what to do, since Athens had no major exhibition venues at the time and artists
hesitated to go into such an adventure. Kounellis himself solved the problem by
suggesting, as a true avant-garde artist, a highly un-museum-like venue: a ship.
And as if by miracle, a cargo vessel was found. It was called IONION, named
after the sea which connects his birthplace, Greece, with his adoptive country—
Italy. Kounellis was overjoyed at this and worked hard aboard the cargo vessel
to prepare the show. This, too, was a kind of retrospective of his work till then,
and became a point of reference for the Athenian art scene at the time.

Since then the Foundation has devoted a large part of its budget to Art. The
years that followed saw many art projects for Greek artists or artists of Greek
descent who lived abroad. Among them were Nelly’s (1997-1998), Pavlos (1997),
Costas Tsoclis (2000), Lucas Samaras (2005), Stephen Antonakos (2007-2008),
Yannis Gaitis (2008).

That was how I began to get more directly involved with things at the
Foundation, and even though I keep saying that I am getting old and should
give it up, I am still there all the time. I have come to love the three girls, Meni,
Vivian and Magda, and I’ll drop in to hear their news even when there is no
other business to be dealt with by me.
Finally, I should like to share with my brother Yannis Costopoulos the following
thought: I do not know whether John F. Costopoulos, after whom the Foundation
is named, was as great a lover of art as our own father and mother. In any case,
our parents’ interest and love for art was so fervent that I am sure they would be
happy with the Foundation’s specialisation in the direction of artistic creation.
Anastasia Costopoulos
Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees
A
special chapter in the history of the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation,
and a decisive activity for its identity, is that of its own
exhibitions and publications. It all started in 1994, with the
exhibition of the internationally renowned Jannis Kounellis, and continues
to this day. Focusing mainly on contemporary art exhibitions and their
accompanying catalogues, this activity sometimes goes into other areas
such as the production of self-contained publications, documentary films
of artistic and cultural character, and conferences. Nevertheless, it is the
field of art exhibitions which has established the Foundation in the minds
of the art-loving public as one of the major institutions, whether private or
public, which support and promote the visual arts in Greece and abroad.
Even when the Foundation embarked on organising its own exhibitions,
it never ceased to support exhibitions organised by other institutions at
a time when few venues, private or public, promoted contemporary art;
in the early 1990s the state museums of contemporary art had not been
founded yet nor had the private or regional museums, collections and
foundations acquired their own spaces. The Greek art scene in the 1980s
and 1990s was a lot different than the current one; if not actually barren,
it was still inhospitable when it came to contemporary art. Even in the
field of commercial artistic activity, very few galleries dealt exclusively in
contemporary art and even fewer in international contemporary art. The
concerted efforts to promote domestic art and link it to the European scene
did not start until the second half of the 1990s, with the establishment
of the Hellenic Art Galleries Association. This means that Art Athina did
not exist yet, while the auctions by Greek and international Houses which
were beginning to be held in Greece did not encompass contemporary
art. Under these circumstances, the Board of Trustees of the Foundation,
wishing to support contemporary artistic expression in addition to
other aspects of culture, decided to collaborate with other supporters of
contemporary art in promoting the oeuvre of Greek or Greek-born artists
who had gained international acclaim, particularly in the second half of
the twentieth century and specifically after the 1960s.
The fact that the Foundation did not have its own exhibition venue
proved in fact to be beneficial. On the one hand, it enabled us to organise
78
79
THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
exhibitions in unconventional venues, as we can see in the list and the
accompanying photographs in this chapter, boosting the impact of the
shows and underscoring the alternative, versatile nature of contemporary
art; on the other hand, it led to collaborations with many other
institutions in the country, as befits the Foundation’s benevolent and
flexible orientation. Many of these collaborations grew over the years and
expanded into other areas, often providing excellent results and helping
to change the landscape with regard to the reception and appreciation of
contemporary art in our country. Among these collaborations, it is worth
noting in particular those with the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary
Art, the Benaki Museum, the National Gallery-Alexandros Soutzos Museum
and the Athens School of Fine Arts; in 1994, the latter was supported
by the Foundation in opening and inaugurating with an exhibition of the
sculptor Takis the exhibition space named The Factory which remained for
several years as the only venue for large and important contemporary art
exhibitions in Athens.
Since 1994 and on an almost annual basis, the Foundation has had a
constant presence on the modern and contemporary art scene, organising,
co-organising or supporting major exhibitions which promote in Greece
and abroad the work and the personality of Greek or Greek-born artists
and their role in the domestic or international arena. This activity of the
Foundation has been repeatedly recognised, most notably by the OMEPO
(Association for Business Sponsorship of the Arts) in the years 1994-1999.
Among the exhibitions of the Foundation, a major milestone is that of
Jannis Kounellis aboard the M/V IONION in Piraeus, given the importance
of the artist, the fact that it was the very first exhibition of the Foundation
and the choice of a cargo vessel as the venue. This is a good opportunity to
thank the artist and the Bernier/Eliades Gallery for the idea of organising
a major exhibition of the artist in his home country and for applying to
the Foundation, which undertook the initiative for staging this significant
cultural event.
As a result of the unique character of this exhibition and its success
within and beyond the borders, our communication and collaboration
with the artist grew into a warm and productive relationship, and led
to the creation of an archive in Greece of Kounellis’s exhibitions and
bibliography which is regularly enriched and updated. A more extensive
reference to this particular show—although understandable, as it marked
the beginning, in 1994, of what is widely acknowledged as a successful

and useful programme of exhibitions—would not be justified, since all of
the Foundation’s exhibitions had something special about them and they
are said to reflect a new approach to the concept of contemporary art
retrospectives in this country. To this end, we believe it is worth making
brief reference to all the exhibitions organised by the Foundation and
present a few characteristic photos as reminders.
The activities of the Foundation have gone beyond Greece and Greek
artists. Indicative examples include the 1997 exhibition of Ellie
Souyoultzoglou-Seraidari, the photographer known as Nelly’s, at the
International Center of Photography in New York in collaboration with the
Benaki Museum’s Photographic Archives; the exhibition of contemporary
Italian artists in Athens (Gazi) in 1998 as part of Art Athina; or the
2007 show in Thessaloniki of the American artist Eve Sussman and her
associates of the Rufus Corporation, from various fields of contemporary
expression, in collaboration with the State Museum of Contemporary Art
and as part of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.
In addition to organising exhibitions, mostly retrospective, the Foundation
has also published or co-published exhibition catalogues and other visualart-related publications.
A smaller-scale but not negligible activity is that of publishing in the
broader field of our cultural heritage; one example is Roger Tourte’s album
on Sifnos, a limited edition for the Foundation’s twentieth anniversary.
81
THE J. F. COSTOPOULOS FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY REPORT
More recently, the Foundation embarked on a major new activity in
the area of art education, in collaboration with universities and other
recognised educational institutions, part of which was the Conference/
tribute to Stratis Eleftheriades (Tériade), organised in November, 2008 in
collaboration with the University of the Aegean.

thank all our associates—external and internal—without whose unstinting
participation this difficult venture could not have been achieved by a Greek
Foundation with limited technical and human resources. It is to them that
we owe our reputation as an organisation whose name is a guarantee for
noteworthy artistic events in Greece and abroad.
One other area of joint projects is that of documentary films, mainly on
subjects associated with the exhibitions organised by the Foundation or
linked with issues of cultural heritage. We can cite as indicative examples
the film by Hans Peter Schwerfel on Jannis Kounellis, co-produced with
the German company Artcore, the films by Yorgos Dambassis on Pavlos or
the one for the exhibition The Glory of Byzantium, which was shown at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York in 1997.
In closing this succinct reference to the Foundation’s activities in
relation to promoting the contemporary art scene and the artistic events
in our country, we wish, before presenting the lists of exhibitions and
publications we have undertaken alone or in collaboration with others, to
thank the artists for their confidence in the Foundation as it took its first
steps in this demanding but challenging and interesting field. We wish to
