    Narrative immersion: the next challenge

    Increasingly more narrative formats are opting for immersion. At Kosmopolis 2017 we explored this tendency, which puts people’s experience at the centre of the experience and grants us decision-making power. The three Alpha Channel chats that we are offering investigated virtual reality and other immersive experiences, pioneers of what can be glimpsed as the next great language.

    Kosmopolis books for this summer

    19 .07 .2017 - Kosmopolis

    That time of year is here when everyone’s offering literary recommendations. Now’s the moment to decide which book or books will accompany us over the course of the summer, which stories are ideal for taking to the beach or which classic it’s time to take up for those evenings al fresco. Our choice is not based on any of these considerations, but on one that is closer to home: the books we recommend below are all by authors that at some point have participated in Kosmopolis.
