“Crises and Responsibilities. kNOWledges in Academia, Arts and Activism”
The 9th edition of the BIGSAS Festival of African and African-diasporic literature will be dedicated to “crisis” – and respective knowledges and responsibilities. For one thing, we talk about environmentalism in the context of a Friday for Future demonstration. For another, the so called “refugee crisis” is under scrutiny. Readings, performances, concerts, a vernissage, scholarly lectures and panel discussions, workshops will frame a dialogue of academia, activism and the arts from Africa, the MENA region, respective diasporas and beyond.
