Celebrating a great writer of the 20th Century

Benjamin Fondane: The Existential Ulysses
Talk / Film / Exhibition

Wednesday 15 March 2017, 7pm
The Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square


We are delighted to invite you to an evening dedicated to Benjamin Fondane, the Jewish Romanian avant-garde icon turned French poet and philosopher, and the focus of this year’s Romanian programme at the London Book Fair. Professors Mircea Martin and Ramona Fotiade, together with translator Andrew Rubens and literary critic Nick Lezard (The Guardian) will reflect on Fondane’s cultural legacy and discuss the relevance of his works in today’s era.

The discussions will be preceded by the screening of ‘Benjamin Fondane – Iaşi, Paris, Auschwitz’ (d. Andreea Știliuc, TVR Iaşi, 2013) and accompanied by an exhibition dedicated to the author’s life and work.

Followed by a glass of wine.

Free entry. Please book in advance if you wish to attend.

The Romanian presence at the LBF 2017 is organised by the Romanian Cultural Institute’s National Book Centre and the Romanian Cultural Institute in London, with the support of the Romanian Embassy, Waterstones Piccadilly, the Romanian Publishers Association, New York Review of Books, The Jewish Theatre in Bucharest, and the National Museum of Romanian Literature.
