A Night of Philosophy
Fri 01.9. - Sat 02.9.
The surpise hit of last year’s Helsinki Festival, A Night of Philosophy returns to Kiasma! It will, once again, be an invitation to experience philosophy as performance, offering a multitude of philosophy talks and art interventions from dusk till dawn.
In relation to the ARS17 exhibition taking over Kiasma, A Night of Philosophy offers perspectives into the increasingly complex relationship between humankind and technology. Digitalisation and the internet have drastically changed our everyday lives, from work and leisure to the economy and means of communication. But how has this digital revolution affected our way of thinking, questioning and philosophising?
Having charmed night owls in New York, Paris, London and Berlin in addition to Helsinki, A Night of Philosophy is the brainchild of French-born philosopher, dramaturge and theatre director Mériam Korichi. During the night, a wide group of Finnish and international philosophers and artists will perform. A more detailed programme will be published during August.
