Monsters in European Art

Workshop
Monsters in European Art

Humankind has imagined countless fantastic creatures to symbolize unexplainable events and express complex ideas. Found in the oldest written records, these creatures have been symbols of power that were feared as well as revered for their ability to do immense evil or good.

Order and chaos, the conflict between good and evil, have been embodied by gods and monsters.  The order is kept by the Gods who defeat monsters, like Marduk slaying Tiamat or Zeus subduing Typhon.  An infamous monster, the dragon, has long symbolized the cycle of life and death.

Leonardo da Vinci’s depiction of a dragon, Goya’s “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters” etching, Picasso’s half man half bull beasts and Borges’s The Book of Imaginary Beings are all manifestations of this continuous interest in monsters.  The talks will cover the striking world of monsters that have lived in mankind’s imagination for thousands of years.

All of the events are free of charge and limited to 60 seats.
Invites for the free events can be procured from the Akbank Sanat Booth 1 hour before the event starts.
