The eighth Forum Transcultural Encounters 2022, Imagination and Relation, intends to explore the transformation of imagination from a (reproductive) mental faculty related to an individual human subject to a specific dynamic of (human and non-human) form-giving behavior demanding a reconsideration of the certainties that populated the modern Western mind. This Forum is inspired by some of Alain Daniélou’s ideas in his books La fantaisie des dieux et l’aventure humaine (1985) and Les contes du labyrinthe, where imagination transcends the sphere of the human and becomes a bridge for another kind of relation.
