Reading and writing: Heinrich Schliemann and Antonios

The Gennadius Library invites you at the exhibition “reading and writing: Heinrich Schliemann and Antonios”.

Selected from his unique diaries, writings of the renowned archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann are placed in dynamic discourse with visually engaging writings of the artist Antonios. Written in 13 languages, from Russian to Arabic and Farsi, Schliemann’s texts function as chronicles of his multi-cultural initiation and transcribe this process materially. Antonios’ work in over 70 languages poses parallel issues, revealing writing as a miraculous, multi-purpose tool. Digitized material from the Schliemann Papers of the Archives of the Gennadius Libray will be also presented.
