“Discussion is something which is disappearing (or perhaps has disappeared already) from a world dominated by populism – and discussion is the only social bond feared by violence.”
Michał Paweł Markowski, artistic director of the Conrad Festival (22-28 October), has placed discussion at the heart of this year’s literary celebrations. The festival also poses important questions about POP, understood as the core of our cultural and political experience.
The main programme features meetings with authors, debates, discussions, reading lessons and schools, film screenings and the Conrad Prize awarded for best debut of the last year, while individual days focus on concepts of correctness, popularity, drive, populism, popular culture, panic and demand.
