Patricia Vigderman: The Real Life of the Parthenon

Friday 8 March, 6pm-7pm

Al Khayma, InterContinental, DFC

What does it mean to visit a lost past? And what makes art from a distant past feel as if it belongs to you?Professor Patricia Vigderman’s own journey began at the Parthenon, but curiosity edged her further onto the sea between antiquity and the present.

The stories around antiquities become distorted by the pull of ownership, and it is these stories that urge Patricia into her own exploration of their inspiring legacy. In The Real Life of the Parthenon Patricia Vigderman looks at controversies over ownership of antiquities, and at the pleasurable and perplexing experience of having a stake in their meaning. This session is a chance not only to learn more about questions of ownership and aesthetics, but also the art of writing effectively about these issues.
