A COUNTRY OF WOMEN
Małgorzata Druciarek, Elżbieta Korolczuk, Justyna Kurzawska
Feminism at its best is a movement working for all those who are discriminated against -socially, economically and culturally. Could it be a tool to fight against fascism, which contradicts the principles of equality and freedom? In what areas, to what extent and in what form does the fight for women’s rights coincide with other forms of objectification, segregation and social injustice? What model of politics and public institutions does feminism propose?
FORUM 2019: A culture of war in a time of peace
The Forum for discussions in Wolności Square is where we broadly talk about the main festival theme. This year, our focus is on the relationship between war and peace. Statistics show that we are living in the safest and least brutal period in history, but despite this, war is not an abstract or unreal concept at all. What form does war take in this most peaceful of ages? How do we define this state of war/peace? What will future wars be like?
We invite you to meet writers, philosophers, political scientists and people who have participated in and witnessed contemporary warfare.
The discussions are accompanied by staged readings of excerpts from a selection of books.
