Fom identity to rage – 5 years of LitFestBergen

Every year LitFestBergen takes a starting point in a theme in its festival programme. In the first festival year 2019 the debate was about what role identity should play in literature and in politics currently in Norway, while in February 2023, among other things, we look at how such identity struggles can lead to rage, which is the theme for the year. What has changed in public debate, and how has increasing polarisation found expression in Norwegian and inter­­national literature and culture? 

Teresa Grøtan has been festival director since the start. She meets the director of the Free­dom of Expression Commission and Norwegian PEN, Kjersti Løken Stavrum, and the cul­ture editor of Bergens Tidende, Jens Kihl, for a debate on what has been happening in lite­ra­ture and in the world over the past five years. The conversation is chaired by the author Sandra Lillebø, who is a member of the festival’s artistic board.

The event will be in Norwegian.
