„Battle with the Empty Sky”. Language, nationalism and free art in the early 21st century’s Europe
Friday, 29 October 2021, 7pm | FUGA – BUDAPEST CENTER OF ARCHITECTURE
Livestream, workshops and public debate
Our language is a defining part of identity and culture in Europe – it is however a changing entity which keeps reflecting the current changes of our society, politics and everyday lives. How is our language affected when politics moves in a populist, nationalist, or other radical direction? Which linguistic mechanisms and tools do the latest political tendencies use? The open debate with internationally well-known authors, linguists and political experts and the workshops for university students in Budapest will analyze these questions to trace down the same signs in our everyday, political and artistic language.
With: Luc Devoldere, Robert Menasse, Terézia Mora, András B. Vágvölgyi, Ádám Nádasdy (tbc) and others
