Talk.Margaret Atwood. The moon: a guiding light for the future

follow the live streaming here

“Moonlight and indirection, not the full noon-time glare all at once. That, is good advice for creatives” Margaret Atwood.

How can art help us find our way back to a future in which light and shadows can coexist and thrive off each other? We discuss this with one of the most anarchic-minded authors of the 21st century, Canadian Margaret Atwood, who, in this conversation with Livia Filotico and Giovanna Melandri and drawing from the artistic imagery of the moon in western traditions, helps us imagine a future in which control and freedom, structure and dreams, ambiguity and certainty, performance and pleasure, profit and kindness, numbers and art, objectivity and divinity, networks and hierarchies can do help each other out.
