This project and this book came out of conversations about learning and art, which some-how blended into discussions about Aphrodite and Yemanja (and then Kali, and then Panayia and the Madonna) and at the same time, into a critical exchange around socially engaged art practices in Rio de Janeiro and Lefkosia.
These may seem disparate threads, but they all seek, in some way, to understand transition: transition in terms of integration, amalgamation, transition or flow of belief systems and the re-articulation of religious rituals through migration, and finally about the development of an active practice around these issues, with local immediacy in specific geo-political contexts.
