Description of Artwork: The video installation combined footage of Greek pornograghic movies of the 1960s and 1970s with a soundtrack featuring the Greek national anthem.

The Incident: The exhibit was shut down following a police raid on the Helexpo venue in Maroussi on Saturday. The shows curator, Michalis Argyros, spent the night in a police cell and has been charged with offending public morals. The same charges have also been brought against Stefani, who is currently abroad.

Results of Incident: Dozens of artists as well as intellectuals and politicians yesterday condemned the closure by police on Saturday of a supposedly indecent art exhibit and the arrest of the shows curator. At least 70 artists contributed pieces to a counter-exhibition in Metaxourgeio yesterday, intended as a protest to the authorities censorship of a video installation by prize-winning artist Eva Stefani at the Art Athina show.
