SW At The Poland International Education Fair

Posted By Mike on February 27, 2008

Our friend Lukasz from Imperial City Online wrote in with the following:

"Attached, is a .doc file with information about an artistic event, which is being organised by Jaroslaw Marek Spychala, Polish philosopher and Star Wars fan. Jaroslaw is well known within the Polish Star Wars fandom mainly through his enormous collection of Star Wars LEGO sets which, he claims, serve as inspiration for his projects...BTW, here's a nice photo of Jaroslaw and a fraction of his collection:"





See below for the event info Lukasz sent over:


Jaroslaw Marek Spychala
and his students

proudly present:

"Heracles, Jesus Christ and Lord Vader on the crossroads"

to take place during:

9th Edition of the Poland International Education Fair
PERSPEKTYWY 2008
7-8th of March, 2008

Warsaw International Expocentre EXPO XXI
12/14 Pradzynski St.
01-222 Warsaw,
Poland


NOTE: Joining the event, are members of the 501st Legion Polish Outpost


The message of the Project:

The "Heracles, Jesus Christ and Lord Vader on the crossroads" project is both an artistic and a philosophical endeavour, the main focus of which is the ancient philosophical idea contained within the myth, titled "The Choice of Heracles".

The tale speaks of Heracles choosing between the nymphs Virtue and Pleasure, thus deciding to shape his own future. The myth originated over 2500 years ago among the followers of Pythagoras, and serves even today as a metaphorical answer to the question of how should one live, in order to achieve inner peace and happiness.

The universal tone of the Pythagorean idea is reflected in European philosophy, Christian religion and modern pop culture. In Star Wars, it is Lord Vader who makes the choice between Darkness and Light.

The project connects the notions found in philosophy, religion and pop culture with art as a form of self-expression. Famous personalities of the world of Polish culture and science, well-known actors, politicians and reporters, who had already made their choices in life, will be asked to paint one of the three characters, thus forming one giant painting. It will serve as inspiration and encouragement for people to search for their own way in life, and shall remind them that even celebrities had to earn their success.

About the author:
Jaroslaw Marek Spychala is the creator of the internationally recognised LEGO-LOGOS Project of Philosophical Education and the "Creatio Ex Legendo" International Festival of Philosophical Education. His professional interests lie in ancient philosophy and religion. he's the author of academic publications concerning philosophy in general, as well as translations from classical languages.

Thanks Lukasz!
