Cultural intersection between «East» and «West»: The case of the German Archaeological Institute in Greece (19th – First decades of the 20th Century)
This paper is focused on the case of the German Archeological Institute of Athens in the context of the broader research undertaken by the authors on the role of Foreign Archaeological Schools in Greece as mechanisms for the fabrication and construction of cultural strategies and thus possible/functioning political intervention tools.
The authors examine the underlying narrative which frames the foundation, the positioning and the role of the German Archaeological Institute in the Greek space during the «long 19th Century» and the way this crosses with the national/european rhetoric of the time including the Greek. In parallel, they review in what ways the German paradigm is characterized through its nature and dynamics by its own particular goals while offering at the same time fertile ground for the comparative understanding of the contrasting strategies of the various Foreign Archaeological Schools in Greece. In their study, they underline that politics and culture are two intertwining pillars and should be viewed and explained in this light.
