|Chatzistavrou, Zoe: The Intellectual and Artistic Life of Thessaloniki in the Decade 1950-1960, PhD 2002|
The present study aims at approaching the cultural profile of the city during the period 1950-1960 through the artistic life of the period. The study draws its information from the references of the press on the artistic events of the period. These events are related, in the order they are presented in the chapters, to music, theatre, visual arts, and literature. New forms of art, such as film, are not mentioned at all. All chapters follow the same structure. The events are not developed on a chronological axis indiscriminately, but special theme subsections are created within which these events are incorporated in chronological order. Finally, the information material of the study was supplemented with some interviews from important figures of the city. Moreover, the specific literature of the various arts is used but to a limited extend, because the study aims at presenting the stylistic particularity of each creator and not an overall assessment of his/her work.
