The German Embassy in Athens, Greece, and Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe curator Dr. Katarina Horst inaugurated on Monday the exhibition “Eurolog: Europe in Dialogue with Antiquity” that is held at the Athens International Airport between March 16-29.
“Why get to know the past? How can knowledge of antiquity help answer questions in the present and future? These questions are the focus of the Eurolog project,” Horst noted.
People in the European-Mediterranean area look back on a common past, which is still present these days in the intellectual and material heritage.
Meetings and relationships, and the various related forms of communication and life are a characteristic component of both the antique and the present world. For millennia, foreign cultural elements have entered one sphere or been transposed to another in a constant exchange.
The Eurolog Method is dedicated to these processes and offers a change of perspective.
Eurolog-Projekt is supported by the European Union and takes place in cooperation with four cultural institutions in Europe and North Africa.
