APHRODITE: HARMONY AND THE INCONCEIVABLE

THE GATE OF FAMAGUSTA, NICOSIA 10.9-28.9/1990

Held at the Famagusta Gate in Nicosia, Cyprus, Aphrodite: Harmony and the Inconceivable and its accompanying symposium (with the particiaption of Xavier Bordes, Demosthenes Davvetas, Michel Deguy, Manos Eleftheriou, Jean-Luc Nancy) create a kind of extended banquet where artists, poets, and philosophers participate in a series of dialogues on the theme of aesthetics and beauty, in what many consider to be the birthplace of Aphrodite.

Organized by the DESTE Foundation in collaboration with the Cypriot Ministry of Education and the Laiki Bank Cultural Center, the project was restaged two months later at the Musée d’Art Moderne, Réfectoire des Jacobins, Toulouse, France.
