Workshop - discussion
Saturday, January 31, 2015, 11 am
At the background of Hélène Binet’s photographic exhibition of the modernist icon-residence of the architect Neoptolemos Michaelides, Point Centre for Contemporary Art is hosting a theoretical workshop in the form of a discussion on Saturday, January 31, 11:00 am. Following the invitation of Petros Phokaides, the discussion will be joined by the architectural historian/theorists, Panayiota Pyla (Cyprus) and Yorgos Tzirtzilakis (Greece), who will reflect on themes that relate to the particular residence and other relevant postwar themes like nature, collecting and authorship. The main goal of this workshop - discussion is to formulate critical perspectives across Neoptolemos Michaelides’s work and the larger postwar architectural culture, by confronting symbolic legacies and historiographical discourses of modernism.
