Josep Suñol: Un crit valent (FC Barcelona documentary)

FC Barcelona presents the documentary Suñol: Un crit valent (2016), which evokes the figure of journalist and businessman Josep Suñol i Garriga (1898-1936), the president of FC Barcelona murdered by General Franco’s troops at the start of the Spanish Civil War.

Literature and football

Participants: Manuel Forcano, Jordi Puntí, Carles Vilarrubí

Moderator: Tomasz Wisniowski

As the 1970s slogan says, FC Barcelona is “more than a club”. This is still true today because the Barça is at the same time a social phenomenon that conveys key cultural values (the importance of hard work, the possibility of belonging to Catalan society regardless of one’s origins, a sense of pride in Catalan identity), a global sports organisation with one of the most powerful brands in the world, and a cultural experience that figures in the imaginary of many writers. Novelist and noted football fan Jordi Puntí talks with Carles Vilarrubí, vice-president for international affairs of FC Barcelona, about the literary and cultural dimension of football.

BARCELONA: the scenes of the literary imagination

Participants: Jordi Puntí, Care Santos

Moderator: Ewa Wysocka

Barcelona is, among other things, a literary construct. The capital of Catalonia has captured the imagination of numerous authors who have portrayed it in their texts as a scene of social conflicts or as a dense human tapestry of desires, frustrations, pleasures, and vices. At the same time, Barcelona has been the object of utopian projects of social and political transformation, expressing a vocation of European modernity that Catalan literature has been crucial in formulating and conveying. Literature has thus contributed to define Barcelona as the great Mediterranean metropolis it is today. Two Catalan novelists who place Barcelona at the centre of their fiction, Care Santos and Jordi Puntí, discuss the literary dimension of the city with the journalist Ewa Wysocka.

Everyday Heroes: narratives of survival and solidarity

Participants: Màrius Serra

Moderator: Anna Jasinska

We are all inspired by the experience of people whose lives have been marked by illness, disability, or misfortune, and who nevertheless have managed to survive and thrive through sheer willpower and the solidarity of others. However, are these exceptional individuals, or does each of us carry a hero within ourselves? Can literature help us overcome our own limitations and inspire us to become stronger and better? Why do we find these narratives of survival and personal growth so fascinating? Màrius Serra reflects on the transformative power of literature.

Growing pains: youth, books, conflicts

 

Participants: Care Santos, Jordi Sierra i Fabra, Izabela Sowa

Moderator: Marta Kielczyk

Growing up into an adult is a difficult, complicated, and often troublesome process. Literature for young readers has always played a very important role in providing a mirror for generational conflicts and adolescence trouble. But as society changes, so do the circumstances children and teenagers have to deal with. How should today’s literature for young readers treat these new circumstances? Two prominent Catalan authors of this genre, Jordi Sierra i Fabra and Care Santos, share their point of view with Izabela Sowa.

Literature and personal relationships

Participants: Blanca Busquets, Julia Fiedorczuk, Jordi Puntí

Moderator: Justyna Czechowska

Blanca Busquets and Jordi Puntí are two Catalan authors, each with their distinct style and perspective, whose work places particular emphasis on personal relationships and the role that communication (or the lack of it), emotion, desire, and the passions play in everyday life. In this event they will share their views on how literature both represents and shapes personal relationships. Justyna Czechowska moderates the discussion.

Music and Literature

Participants: Blanca Busquets, Włodzimierz Kowalewski, Jordi Sierra i Fabra

Moderator: Ewa Wysocka

Many literary authors have been inspired by music when creating their works. Sometimes a novel follows the structure of a musical piece; a poem may attempt to capture the emotions conveyed by a melody; musical instruments are often powerful symbols in literary texts; and a song may encapsulate the spirit of a whole historical period that fiction aims to depict. What role does music play in contemporary literature? How are Catalan and Polish authors inspired by it? Blanca Busquets, Jordi Sierra i Fabra, and Włodzimierz Kowalewski discuss the importance of music in their work and in the literary texts that have influenced them.

Memeory, history, responsibility

Participants: Sebastià Alzamora, Anna Dziewitt-Meller, Rafel Nadal

Moderator: Ewa Wysocka

Every society needs to narrate its own past in order to achieve a sense of shared identity. Literature is a particularly powerful medium in this respect, because it not only uses the events of the past as its material, but it also draws from individual and collective memory to offer a more nuanced, rich, complex view of our experience as societies. But to what extent does the literary use of memory distort historical truth? What interests are served by the representation of collective memory today?  What is the ethical responsibility of authors in the writing of collective memory? Rafel Nadal, Sebastià Alzamora, and Anna Dziewitt-Meller debate on these issues.

Literature and journalism

Participants: Katarzyna Bonda, Jenn Díaz, Màrius Serra

What are the links between literature and journalism? Can journalistic writing be considered an art, a literary genre? In what ways does journalism capture the essence of the present time better than other kinds of writing? What is the influence of journalism in today’s literature? What is the status of journalism as a literary form in Catalan and Polish culture? Màrius Serra, Jenn Díaz, and Katarzyna Bonda reflect on these questions.

In the margins of the real:crime, fiction, fantasy, sci-fi

Participants: Sebastià Alzamora, Marc Pastor and Mariusz Czubaj

Moderator: Piotr Kofta

Some literary genres compel us to confront the most disturbing aspects of human nature, lead us to imagine alternatives to our present world, or present us a disconcerting view of history. In all of these cases, by placing themselves in the margins of the real, these literary genres make us think beyond the limits of reality. Marc Pastor, Sebastià Alzamora, and Mariusz Czubaj talk about crime fiction, fantasy and sci-fi.

Moderator: Justyna Czechowska

Families are our first social group, the environment where we learn to love and live with others. They also give rise to ambivalence and conflict, conceal secrets that are often painful, and mobilise fundamental human passions. Families are indeed an endless source of storytelling. Best-selling authors Jenn Díaz, Rafel Nadal, and Malgorzata Gutowska-Adamczyk discuss the portrayal of family relationships in their fiction, in a conversation moderated by Justyna Czechowska.
