Talking about Russia

Literaturhaus Basel

The discussion will take place in Russian and German

The internationally acclaimed author Michail Schischkin and the music-critic, journalist and academic Artemy Troitsky both left their native Russia many years ago, and were trenchant critics of Putin’s regime long before the invasion of Ukraine. They will talk about the state of Russian society, the role of artists and intellectuals in the past and present, and discuss where the impetus for change, in opposition to dictatorship and the barbarism of war, could come from.
