Literary Programme: Prophet Lem? On Sepulcs and Robots around us

26.06.2021 - 16:30 / Festival Tent | streaming live: and

At the time of the Polish People’s Republic, Stanisław Lem described in his books the tools and inventions we now call the Internet, Google search engine, e-books, tablets and 3D printing. To what extent are the predictions made half a century ago by the patron of the year 2021 appropriate to describe the contemporary reality?

We have invited one of the most important Polish writers – Dorota Masłowska, along with Aleksandra Przegalińska – a philosopher and futurologist specializing in research on the development of artificial intelligence, to take a fresh look at the books by the author of Solaris. What will the outcomes of this encounter be?

The event has been organized in cooperation with KBF Krakow Festival Office, the operator of the programme Krakow UNESCO City of Literature.
Co-financed by the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport from the Culture Promotion Fund.
The meeting has been organized as part of celebrations to mark the centenary of Stanisław Lem’s birth.
