On Wednesday, February 14th, 2018, the SNF organized the 4th event of the new monthly series DIALOGUES, regarding Eros at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.

Representatives of Science, Philosophy and Arts created a unique polyphony in an attempt to construct and deconstruct the concept of Love

Professor of Ancient History and Classics at the Institute for Advanced Study, Mr. Angelos Chaniotis, Professor in the Department of History and Archaeology at the University of Crete and Director of the Museum of Cycladic Art, Mr. Nikos Stampolidis, Psychiatrist - Psychoanalyst and Honorary President of the Hellenic Psychiatric Association, Mr. Nikos Tzavaras and scriptwriter Ms. Mirella Papaoikonomou shed light upon the various interpretations attributed to the concept of love, which, as a subject itself, has been a driving force for human expression and creation.
