During that time, a documentary has been made which combines a journalistic account of the conflict with an overview of the cultural references behind it.

Weaving Europe: The World as Meditation

Weaving Europe: The World as Meditation

Saturday 18th November
From:
16:00 - 19:00

Being one of the oldest art forms in the world, this project refers to the art of weaving, its history and its semiotics. What can the historical language of weaving offer to modern visual art practices, like digital technology, new media and Internet art? Art History has neglected weaving, knitting and embroidery as well as other domestic forms of art, classifying them as feminine and not equal in value compared to the Fine Arts. This exhibition explores female labour and the role of women in the history of art. Comparing weaving to Plato’s political philosophy, the metaphor of “Weaving Europe” poses the issue of European identity and its construction and the need to examine the threads that “weave” Europe. The project includes an exhibition of contemporary art by Cypriot and international artists whose work involves the use of new media and digital technologies. It also includes lectures and discussions, workshops about knitting as a form of therapy, film and documentary screenings and a journal publication.

The European Capital of Culture initiative brings them back to life and re-integrates them into the urban and social landscape of their respective city. Two members from the citizens initiative Kosmos Collective who are trying to breathe new cultural life into the building have been invited to Cyprus to present the restoration processes accompanied by the director of the Night of Museum and Galleries held in Plovdiv annually.
