2017-Trans-Allegoria - A Night of Philosophy

A Night of Philosophy is a nocturnal event, inviting philosophers and artists to create a unique encounter between Philosophy, Art and the general Public. It is a sort of championship between Art and Philosophy about the meaning of things. It is based on profusion, simultaneity and free access. As a site-specific staged event, A Night of Philosophy offers each time a new experience. After Paris, Berlin, London, New York, Helsinki, UNESCO's Paris headquarters, Brooklyn, Lima, A Night of Philosophy is held for the first time in Mykonos. As the closing event of Mykonos Biennale 2017, A Night of Philosophy takes its inspiration from Plato and will take the special form of a symposium on love: philosophers and artists will all gather around the same table and propose vivid and visionary, actual and untimely evocations of love.
