“Kazantzakis and the Arab World” is the title of the pending exhibition to be hosted at the Egyptian Cultural Centre of Athens from February 28 to March 3, within the framework of international celebrations of the 55th anniversary of the author’s death, organized by the International Society of Nikos Kazantzakis’ Friends.
In the inauguration of the exhibition on February 28, the president of the International Society of Nikos Kazantzakis’ Friends will hold a lecture on the same theme.
Further exhibitions in memory of the Greek author will be held in other capital cities, including Madrid in April (“Kazantzakis and Crete”), Beijing in May (“On Kazantzakis and author Lu Xun”) and Harare in November, where local artists will present their artwork inspired by Kazantzakis’ work.
The International Society of Nikos Kazantzakis’ Friends was founded in 1988 in Geneva by Eleni Kazantzaki, George Stassinakis, and George Anemogiannis. To date, the society includes over 5.000 registered members from more than 105 countries around the world.
