The Conrad Festival in book stores: Congo – how many stories? A meeting with Félix Kaputu and David van Reybrouck

The Conrad Festival in book stores: Congo – how many stories? A meeting with Félix Kaputu and David van Reybrouck

A historian of ideas and sociologist from Congo, imprisoned multiple times and forced to leave the country, accused of separatist actions, author of one of the most famous historic reports of this decade. A proud and unyielding representative of the Chokwe tribe and the old colonial metropolis. Is it possible to write a history of the country remembered by the world as Conrad’s Heart of Darkness?

The meeting with Félix Kaputu – a beneficiary of the ICORN programme staying in Krakow – and David van Reybrouck, a Belgian-Flemish writer, columnist and historian, author of a monograph titled Congo: The Epic History of a People(published in Poland as Kongo. Opowieść o zrujnowanym kraju by WAB, 2016).

The discussion will be held in English.

Host: Maciej Jakubowiak
