“Empower the living”: conversation with Alain Damasio
Author of a fascinating body of work, the father of the novel Les Furtifs, published in 2019, sees himself as the creator of “future" worlds, as a keen observer of socio-political power dynamics. Social-minded and haunted by questions of co-existence, his science fiction exists to address immediate planetary issues that concern us all. A passionate discussion with an ultra cult writer on more desirable horizons than those promised by liberalism, and contemplation in his company of new and inspiring modes of struggle.
Saturday 6 March
The conversation will be held in French only.
Co-presented with the Maison d’Ailleurs and the Numerik Games Festival
