The Boldness of the Future

Debate

The writer José Luis Peixoto, one of the most original voices in contemporary literature, will speak with the cultural journalist Eva Piquer about how the word can open up paths to the future.

Literature has played an important role during the COVID-19 crisis. During confinement, the percentage of regular readers rose to a historic high, and a host of projects to restore the literary word to public life have been initiated. Meanwhile, some thinkers and writers have warned of the difficulty of thinking about a future we have not imagined. What effect will the pandemic have on literary creation in the coming years? How can the word help us to escape from the loop of the present in which we are living?
