From the Director

As you will know, in response to the COVID-19 crisis we have been obliged to shut down the Institute building to the public. Our community, temporarily dissolved, is now re-emerging online as the Institute becomes a gathering place for our Fellows, Visitors and friends to exchange ideas, thoughts and work and to share them with others through the coming months.

Our programs continue on Zoom for now. Please check our Events page for details and contact us if you would like to join in.

Please consult our Cahiers for ongoing work and thoughts by Fellows, Visitors and staff. Also check out the activities of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative and the remarkable array of educators, artists, curators and students we work with.

Ideas and imagination have never been as precious as now. We hope that ours will be a solace in these difficult times.
