Mark Cousins – Odysseus and Homecoming – Part 2

Lecture date: 2002-01-15

Second in a three-part lecture series hosted at the AA by the Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory and History. The homecoming of Odysseus as narrated in Homers epic has become a cultural trope in western thought. In order to pursue what he argues is a modern idea of location Mark Cousins examines Odysseus return in relation to Jean-Luc Godard’s use of Casa Malaparte – a house that is both the object and subject of desire – as one of the settings for Le Mepris.
