Kosmopolis 2015

VIII Festa de la Literatura Amplificada

Kosmopolis is a biennial festival that since 2002 has defended an open—amplified—concept of literature in which the word (oral, printed, electronic) interacts with the arts and sciences. It is a festival for discovering authors and genres, questioning the canon and the boundaries between disciplines, and explaining the futures of books and reading.

In this coming edition, we’ll be looking at new journalistic narratives and the evolution of investigative journalism, there’ll be a central space about the influence of the writer W. G. Sebald in today’s literature, and we’ll be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland.

There are new features in the festival’s special sections, too: Kosmopolis Bookcamp, devoted to the world of books and publishing, from Thursday to Saturday, will be exploring the limits and possibilities of the book from different viewpoints. And Canal Alfa, the audiovisual programme inspired by literature, is back, stronger than ever, with two outstanding new features: the daily premiere of an evening feature film showing and a whole Sunday devoted to TV series of great literary quality.
