Writers & Thinkers ’22-’23

Talks & Debates

Bozar’s stage for talks and debates

Bozar brings a number of exceptional voices from the 21st century to its Writers & Thinkers stage. A richly filled series of talks and debates that take you into in-depth discussions on the cutting edge of art and society. The most important writers and thinkers of tomorrow elaborate on the big themes of today. From democracy to diversity to beauty and consolation.

Bozar kicks off the fall of 2022 with archaeologist David Wengrow, who will present his much-discussed book The Dawn of Everything. This autumn, special attention is paid to poetry and literature from Egypt and Sudan. Some experienced authors such as Orhan Pamuk, Sylvain Tesson, Charlotte Mutsaers, Rachel Cusk and Hitler-biographer Ian Kershaw will climb onto our stage. However, we are also giving the floor to young writers like Nino Haratischwili and Prix Goncourt winner Mbougar Sarr. You can browse through the full programme below. 

Would you like to start digging deeper already? You can revisit past talks at any time with our new podcast series.

Evens Foundation is the privileged partner of this programme.
