Start time: 20.30

Venue: Courtyard of Agios Nikolaos, Archaeological site of Elefsina

Entrance €3

This original series of speeches/events – the pure philosophical enclave and Legacy of the 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture program – in its sixth edition, explores under the artistic supervision of the actor and director Ilias Kounelas, the time of abandonment, including a film screening, speeches by distinguished personalities, philosophers, doctors and artists.

Expecting that before we philosophize time, we experience time, the Mystery 62 Nights of Slowness – Discourses about Time derives its theme from the time of abandonment – the interval in which – according to the curator of the event – the body together with the consciousness moves from one state of certainty to another.

As part of the action, the director Stavros Psyllakis, awarded this year with the Golden Alexander at the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, will screen the film he created especially for the event, with characters from his works conversing with Time.

Following in the footsteps of Herman Hesse’s saying, which asserts that every life is an exhalation of God and every death an inhalation of Him, special guests from the fields of philosophy, medicine and the arts will make important speeches and interventions: Giorgos Kranidiotis , historian of philosophy and first supervising pathologist at the First Pathology Clinic of Piraeus General Hospital “Zaneio”, George Tsagdis, academic philosopher and lecturer at the University of Leiden, Groningen and Rotterdam, Nikos Karvounis, oncologist for a number of years at the Metaxas Hospital, Katerina-Christina Manolakou, visual artist and Ifigenia Griva, actress.
