The Biennial of Thought

The Biennial of Thought: a moment for reflection

Seven days full of activities of all kinds that invite you to think about the city.

The Biennial of Thought, Open City is about to start, filling Barcelona with debates, concerts, literature, circus performances and conferences, and lots more, all aimed at making us stop for a moment amid the frenetic pace of our lives and reflect on everything that surrounds us.

The seven-day programme begins on 15 October, when we can, for example, listen to Rita Segato at a seminar on gender violence at the CCCB. On the following day we will have the opportunity to attend a round table discussion on Beyond surveillance capitalism: recovering digital sovereignty with guests from all over the world including Evgeny Morozov, Tony Norfield and Yu Hong. The same day sees the debate There is no Barcelona without the neighbourhoods: Urban renovation and the right to the city with Gaia Radaelli, Jaime Palomera, Carme Trilla and Oriol Nel·lo

On Wednesday 17 October we can attend the round table discussion Between state and market with Guernica Facundo Vericat and Jean-Louis Laville, moderated by Ivan Miró at Plaça Bonet i Muixí. The action continues the next day with, for example, Daniel Innerarity, Joan Manuel del Pozo and Gemma Ubasart on Revising Democracy.

In the Media TIC building on 19 October, the debate Women in the technological industry: Turning stereotypes on their head will take place, featuring Francesca Bria and Therese Jamaal, among other speakers. On the following day, Saturday 20 October, Sylvie Duran, Marta Porto and César Rendueles will address the issue Cultural rights in the city: speaking about inequalities.

The closing day, 21 October, is also full of activities, such as a poetry slam at Pati de les Dones at CCCB.
