Cultural memory of Cyprus gets a contemporary interpretation


Visual Voices is hosting an online discussion on June 3 that will explore the theme of contemporary interpretations of European identity and the local social and cultural memory of Cyprus. The conversation invites artists, activists, researchers, civil society, and the public to share their perspectives on the topic reflecting on their personal experiences.

The Zoom event will start at 7pm with presentations from Cypriot socially engaged artists (Hayal Gezer, Lenia Georgiou, Memo, Nurtane Karagil, Stephanie Lemesianou and Zoe Polycarpou) currently exhibiting their work at the group exhibition ‘Mirrored Reflections- Memories of Tampered Identities’ taking place at EVOHK artist-run space in Larnaca, followed by a panel discussion.

Panellists Dr Esra Plumer Bardak, Andreas Charalambous, Natalia Kouhartsiouk, Ioanna Neophytou, Dr Kyriacos Pachoulides will direct the conversation which will take place in English. The event is free for audiences to attend given that they register by May 30. The online event is part of the Europe for Citizens project Art for Remembrance that takes place in different cities across Europe and explores the sensitive theme of remembrance in creative ways, allowing local artists to showcase their work and to offer diverse narratives.
