AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Icarus has long been a trope in literary and visual art. This work adds to the long history of the Icarus tale, and attempts to investigate its relevance for the 21st century. Particularly, it attempts to use the story of Icarus and his father Daedalus to think through relationships of intimacy: between people and the planet, between husbands and wives, and between suicide bombers and their mentors, in an effort to explore the ethical conundrums of cohabitation.' (Author's abstract)
