How to forget the war? A meeting with Vasyl Słapczuk [cancelled]

How to forget the war? A meeting with Vasyl Słapczuk [cancelled]

[The meeting has been cancelled]

Contrary to popular opinion, wars never look the same. The trauma they cause always remains an extremely individual experience that cannot be described. Which doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try – the best proof of this is the work of Vasyl Słapczuk, a badly wounded veteran of the conflict in Afghanistan in the 1980s . One of the most important Ukrainian writers and poets has spent decades looking for a way to tell his story.

Host: Izabella Chruślińska

Simultaneous interpretation from Ukrainian

28 October, at 14:30 Czeczotka Palace
