Third 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. Mark Cousins explores the denigration of Odysseus by the Romans and by Christianity. He focuses on the relationship between Odysseus and Penelope through an analysis of the domestic space of the apartment in Jean-Luc Godard’s, ‘Le Mepris’.
