The Talks bring artists and experts together to find stronger connections between artistic works and the reality they are part of. A selection of artistic projects presented at the festival and some of their specific subject matters serve as a starting point for discussions about current socio-cultural, philosophical and political issues.
Jacques Rancière, one of Europe’s leading thinkers, is an expert on the extraordinary œuvre of the Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr. In 2011 he published le temps d’après (The Time After), a book dedicated exclusively to that topic. What better reason to meet up and exchange ideas than on the occasion of Tarr’s new work for the Wiener Festwochen.
