Laure Adler is a cultural monument in France. She is well known for her frequent television appearances and her celebrated radio programme on France Culture, on which she has interviewed more or less every major author. For her visit to Bozar, we are turning the tables: Adler, the author, will be interviewed by journalist Béatrice Delvaux from Le Soir.
Not only has Adler written biographies of Marguerite Duras, Hannah Arendt and François Mitterrand, she has also written countless essays, many of which deal with the role of women in the arts. This month sees the publication of her book of interviews with the recently-deceased artist Christian Boltanski, and she has enjoyed considerable success in the past year with La voyageuse de nuit, a personal plea in favour of ageing. Now 71, Adler tackles an extremely topical subject that has become almost “obscene” today. The book describes what it means to become older, and shows how society deals with older people.
