The Onassis Foundation and the Centre for Hellenic Studies, King’s College London present, in the series The Athens Dialogues: Logos – Icon – Logo.

The relationship between word and image is at once an ancient and a contemporary issue. Over the centuries, both words and images have been delivered in different ways, each of them an innovation, from alphabetic writing to YouTube, opening up new routes for communication. The continuous existence of the Greek language means that there has been a continuing debate over these issues for many centuries. The aim of our Dialogue, therefore, is to explore the interaction between words and images from Greek antiquity to the global world of today.Which is more powerful – the Word, the Image or something which encapsulates the tension between the two, the Logo?
