Among the foreign guests are the Americans Jonathan Franzen (photo) and David James Poissant, the French Clément Bondu, Thibault de Montaigu and Nancy Huston, the Spanish Lucía Lijtmaer, the Romanian Mircea Cartarescu, the Italian Francesca Manfredi, the Slovenian Renata Salecl, the Chileans Simón López Trujillo, Alia Trabucco Zerán, the Mexicans Brenda Navarro and Daniela Tarazona.
“The human machine” is the motto of this edition, and considers that “in the face of the culture of machines and algorithms that postulate lifeless solutions to the problem of living, literature appears from the depths of the human enigma to remind us that it is better.” . But not out of a desire for perfection but on the contrary: because it is the machine that fails, the machine that feels, the one that deviates from what was planned, the machine that waits. A machine that, the wilder it is, the more perfect it is, the more human it is.” And this FILBA confirms from its inaugural presentation that instead of the usual speech it chooses to hold a performative conference where the writers Mariano Blatt, Gabriela Massuh and Rafael Spregelburd will meet, reflecting on the human dimension in their creative processes: error, emotion , the detour, the wait and its drifts. This presentation will be broadcast at the same time on Malba’s YouTube channel.
The programming, which can be read on Google at Fundación FILBA, will be offered at the Malba Museum, Av. Figueroa Alcorta 3415; the Santander Foundation, Av. Paseo Colón 1380; Kirchner Cultural Center, Sarmiento 151: La Alianza Francesa, Córdoba 946; TAI, Charlone 1752 and Club 911, Av. Dorrego 911.
