The Boghossian Foundation – Villa Empain is exceptionally closed on Thursday 20 June. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you from Friday 21 June, until 8 September for the visit of the exhibition Josef and Anni Albers.

As part of the exhibition Aleppo, a 5,000 year journey, the Boghossian Foundation invites Yves Ubelmann to take us behind the scenes of this exceptional project in a lecture to be broadcast on line in real time, directly from the Villa Empain.

This immersive and exclusively digital exhibition dedicated to Aleppo, designed by the teams of Iconem, reveals several major monuments of the millennial city.

Iconem founder Yves Ubelmann will review the history of multi-millennial Aleppo and take us to the city today, with its martyred vestiges of Syrian architecture. Illustrated with numerous pictures taken in the city, the lecture will give us the background to the creation of the films projected in the exhibition and introduce us to the tools available today for conserving endangered sites.

The conversation will be led by journalist Soraya Amrani.
