Copernicus Festival 2019
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - Sunday, May 26, 2019
Lectures, discussions, film screenings, exhibitions, workshops and concerts: the events of this year’s Copernicus Festival (21-26 May) are dedicated to “Language” and associated issues. Human language remains a mystery on many levels, so we will be exploring its genesis, impact on the development of human society and civilisation, and how it is processed by its users. Guests include world-famous scholars and acclaimed Polish scientists. The origins of speech are discussed by Charles Taylor, one of the most important philosophers working today, and Daniel Everett, anthropologist, linguist and scholar of languages of native tribes of the Amazonia. The spoken and written word (not just Polish) is described by Elżbieta Tabakowska and Jerzy Bralczyk. The cosmologist Paul Davies, author of The Eerie Silence, turns our attention towards interplanetary communication. We will also hear Grammars of Creation: the Main Building of the National Museum in Krakow hosts the Dutch countertenor Daniel Elgersma and Sławomir Zubrzycki, constructor and virtuoso of the viola organista designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Other concerts feature Mikser appearing in club ZetPeTe and Łona and Webber at Forum Przestrzenie. Accompanying events include screenings at Mikro Cinema and exhibitions The Art of Tongue at the Tytano Foundation and Inventio: Language of Machines at Cricoteka. (Anna Mazur)
