Etel Adnan shares her thoughts on how the “Longue Durée”, as well as a short-termism and “vitesse”, affect today's lives. A reading from Adnan's book “Shifting The Silence” (2020) is followed by a conversation with art historian Claire Hoffmann on ageing, grief, and the challenge of facing death.
“By going fast, we killed the pleasure of travelling. We don’t really travel; we go from one point to another. But this is not a voyage. Voyage is a question of duration – to give you the opportunity to have an experience and mature.”
– Etel Adnan
