    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.

  • The female constelations at K17

    The female constelations at K17

    30 .06 .2017 - Eva Rexach

    Subversive mothers, repentant mothers, grieving mothers and free mothers. Women who celebrate their old age, who write from experience and imagination. We are going to dedicate part of the programming of Kosmopolis to the Female constelations.

  • Seven sessions on climate change in K17

    Seven sessions on climate change in K17

    02 .06 .2017 - Eva Rexach

    Climate change is already a reality and many are the symptoms that show it, from the emergence of vegetation in Antarctica to the alterations in the planet temperatures. At Kosmopolis we wanted to reflect on this and we offered several talks about climate change, because facing climate change involves talking and accepting other changes.

  • Thank You

    Thank You

    27 .03 .2017 - Kosmopolis

    We have to say goodbye to this year’s K17 really happy about the results. We say goodbye to an edition that has improved in public and enthusiasm: not just a few of you have thanked us for a celebration in which the different words that form the amplified literature have interacted in harmony.

  • Ways to enjoy Kosmopolis

    Ways to enjoy Kosmopolis

    16 .03 .2017 - Kosmopolis

    Kosmopolis 17 is already here. You will have five days to enjoy literature, to discover new authors, new stories, new ways of narrating and reading. To think about and discuss climate change, the mixture of genres and the prejudices that still exist on literature written by women. In K17 we think of vignettes, we recreate the Walk of Robert Walser and we invite to Edinburgh, another of the UNESCO’s literary capitals. And we also immerse ourselves in virtual reality to experience stories where you are a main part of the plot. When everything changes, there are plenty of reasons. Here you are some of the ways you can live the celebration.

  • Non-human intelligence

    Non-human intelligence

    Thinking that only humans are intelligent beings is wrong: there are other forms of intelligence that allow animals and plants to inhabit the world in different ways than we do. At Kosmopolis, we will talk about it with ecologists and experts in geobotany and animal neurobiology, and we will also discover the great potential of our brain.

    Historically, the artistic disciplines have mixed together, nourishing and inspiring each other. Each one having its own language, they convey the stories and contribute with their own idiosyncrasies and genuine tools. But what happens when we mix different languages and open the narrative space?

  • The future of reading at Bookcamp Kosmopolis

    The future of reading at Bookcamp Kosmopolis

    23 .02 .2017 - Eva Rexach

    Is it possible to imagine a world without books? In an environment dominated by audiovisual media, what is the meaning of an object that has existed virtually unchanged for hundreds of years? Bookcamp Kosmopolis will be an opportunity to discuss the future of books and narratives.
