{Project’s Description}

‘In the contemporary metropolis, juxtaposed situations plague the corners of cultural production and consumption. Our Contemporary Societies admit confrontational conditions and requires multidimensional spaces for dialogue. It is in the tangential points, where culture finds new spaces of expression in which heterogeneity and disparity are admitted. 

The New Cyprus Museum is one of those places. An augmented context for a society in continuous change. A place for exchange and common understanding. A project for both culture production and culture consumption. A sphere where we can constantly construct, post-produce and develop our past. Transforming it into an up-to-date issue. Projecting it into upcoming situations and creating a future-past’
