Launched in 2020 the professional Instagram account “numismatisticious” is a visual art project of Greek numismatics in the digital age. The spectrum represented ranges from ancient Greek coins to modern drachmas, including banknotes. Via the social media platform of the Instagram the magnificent imagery of Greek coins and banknotes is transported into a new age. The aim of the "numismatisticious" project is to create a new dialogue between coins as art objects and people through artistic reinterpretation. Instagram offers an optimal virtual space for a digital educational offer that creatively addresses a broad public in a creative way.
