‘I Am Greek and I Want to Go Home’ Movement for the Repatriation of Looted Greek Antiquities

“You can steal a statue. But you can NOT steal my origin.


Citizens of the World, I am being kept hostage


I was made to be ridden by Heroes, I was made to run on stone,


I was born in Greece, my sisters are there.”

That’s the new video by the Independent Voluntary Movement for the Repatriation of the Looted Greek Antiquities, initiated by photographer and musician Ares Kalogeropoulos who has launched an international campaign for that cause. Ares Kalogeropoulos created a visual appeal for the return of the priceless marbles currently in London.

The video showing a Caryatid from the British Museum requesting her return HOME; to Greece next to her SISTERS, has sparked admiration among Internet users.

The purpose of this video action is the return of Greek antiquities known as Elgin Marbles illegally detained abroad.
