Miquel Berga and Marc Martínez: "Reading Orwell nowadays"

On Freedom and the Right to Tell People What They Don’t Want to Hear

How relevant is George Orwell’s legacy? Many Orwellian concepts still resound forcefully around the world today, for example his defence of freedom of expression and opposition to censorship. On this fourth celebration of Orwell's Day at the CCCB, Miquel Berga, lecturer in English Literature at the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), speaks about the posthumous victories of the author of Homage to Catalonia. The actor Marc Martínez read fragments of Orwell’s work.
