The etymology of the name Sehen derives from the Akkadian word “sapû”, which means to see in a deeper sense, in the symbiosis between seeing and knowing, to absorb after watching, studying by observing.

The Sehen Foundation seeks to highlight details in the Arts and Sciences through the application of in-depth examination and the comparison of different cultures and it works in partnership with public and private institutions, both nationally and internationally, in the form of exhibitions and publications.
