In the need to take a closer look at societies around the world that are too often overlooked by the mainstream media, we are reading the literature of countries around the world to gain a better understanding of their history, societies, ways of thinking, and political changes and their interactions with society and the struggles of people hoping to gain more rights and freedom.

Kanpur, India, is a city of 3 million—but also one that suffers from blackouts up to 15 hours a day. In response, Loha, a 'Robin Hood of electricity', charges the rich to power impoverished neighborhoods. As he and others like him conflict with power companies and government officials, a portrait of urban decay and people power in the world's fastest developing country takes shape.

3/12: Reading as a shared experience – „The Gift“, an essay by Marcel Mauss

I’ll introduce you a method that helps to read collectively, to construct a common understanding of a text and to share ideas, or even emotions, provoked by it. This method is called „Arpentage“ and I got to know it in France, where it has apparently a long history, at least it is said to be invented by labourers willing to familiralize with new and important ideas, despite the lack of free time.

We’re gonna concentrate on the book „The Gift“ by Marcel Mauss. However, any book can be explored using the Arpentage method.

Social Screenings: The Florida Project

Datum: 
Středa, 11 Prosinec, 2019 - 19:00 - 22:00

In his latest movie, director Sean Baker takes us on a colorful journey through the life of kids living on the fringes of US society. The film follows a group of children growing up in poverty just outside the iconic Disney World – a place that they are never able to enter. Baker neatly treads the line between showing the sheer joy of being a kid out of school (familiar to all of us) and the tragedy of people living on the edge.

A discussion will follow the screening.
