LOGOSFERA: Death in Art
The National Museum in Szczecin - The Museum of Regional Traditions | Pałac Sejmu Stanów Pomorskich, Staromłyńska 27, 70-561 Szczecin, Polska

The LOGOSFERA project is a venture organized by the National Museum in Szczecin together with the Dominican Fathers' Monastery in Szczecin and the Veritas Foundation. As part of it, seminars, meetings and workshops on, among others, theology, philosophy, psychology and culture take place, focusing on questions about human, God and the world. The authors provoke to take up thinking that would serve a fuller life. The project is directed to all people who are creatively searching, wanting to face different points of view. In 2018, LOGOSFERA is devoted to the subject of death.
