|Troia - Exhibition 2001 - 2002|
"TROIA - Dream and Reality" was the title of an exhibition for a new comprehensive presentation of a fascinating topic. Dream and reality represent two elemets of a multi-facetted image of Troia. The dream of Troia is seen in Homer's Iliad, the Trojan war, and the treatment of these topics by authors and artists in antiquity, through the Middle Ages up to present day. These myths are contrasted by the reality of the prehistoric mound at the Dardanelles as it has been unearthed by excavations from the time of Heinrich Schliemann up to the present day.
