Venus as Muse – Figurations of the Creative


Although Aphrodite|Venus has been worshipped, predominantly, as a beautiful goddess of love, she has also embodied different forms of creativity, such as divine, natural, sexual, and artistic. Accordingly, she does not only incorporate concepts of beauty and love, but figures as a goddess of creativity, sexuality, and fertility and has often been venerated as a muse.
The conference seeks to address concrete cultural figurations of Aphrodite|Venus and the different conceptualizations of creativity .
