THE KA SHOP
Own a piece of Byzantine Cultural Heritage
The Karousos Archive Shop aims to protect the artist's work by preventing the spread of misprinted copies. It also intends to take specific pieces of his frescoes outside of religious contexts. You can get a tailor-made "mural" of our epic Byzantine cultural heritage from the KA's exclusive art production.
By redefining its use and space and promoting its thriving continuation in our digital age, the Karousos Archive sparks the global circulation of Byzantine art.
Your access to the Byzantine Riviera
By bringing art, design, economy, ecology, architecture, and spirituality under one roof, Karoussos private members club is a community for all things related to living and thriving in our contemporary cultural tissue. We are an exclusive global community of cultural vision and influence. Our cutting-edge clubhouse serves as a hub for brilliant minds in the cultural sector to network, upskill, work, and be inspired.
The Monastic Experience
The Karoussos Center provides a 5-day exclusive stay of Hesyhasm with the theory and practice of Philokalia, a collection of Hesychastic writings from Neptic Fathers.
Hesychasm, in Eastern Christianity, is a type of monastic life in which practitioners seek divine quietness (Greek hēsychia) through contemplation in uninterrupted prayer. Such prayer, involving the entire human being —soul, mind, and body— is often referred to as "pure" or "noetic" prayer.
The Hesychastic session is carried out through a thorough acknowledgment of Byzantine art that surrounds the center, as well as through cultural exercises.
A New Model of Ecumenical Council
MEC is a pilot educational conference modeled after an Ecumenical Council (Model of Ecumenical Council). Participants assume the role of a body representative, conduct research on current international issues, subject to theological, cultural, and social practices, form alliances, and propose solutions in the form of public resolutions. The fundamental idea of the Model of the Ecumenical Council is the right to our culture in the digital era.
Karoussos Archives will support research and creative actions that use new vistas to provide new insights into the Byzantine world of Ekphrasis throughout our 2023 programmatic theme.
Residents of Post-Ekphrasis seek to reroute the creative development of Byzantine Iconography toward a flourishing contemporary continuity, introducing novel approaches to cultural analysis of Byzantine art.
