Elginism: For or Against?

From a 2001 print ad by TBWA\Athens highlighting the plight of the Parthenon Marbles. There seems to be no elginism.org any more, but you should definitely be reading elginism.com, a great source of news on repatriation struggles from all over the world. Lord Elgin was the man who ripped the Parthenon Marbles from the Parthenon and brought them back to Britain in 1801.

  1. You can see the original TWA pages about their ad campaign on their website here:

    I think they were originally at the .com version of the site - I bought the domain when it came up as available after TBWA had abandoned it.
