We invite you to the online lecture by Prof Karolina Szymaniak "Nods. Lviv through Vogel. Vogel through Lviv." This lecture launches the program "Urban Scraps: Space, Media and Visuality."
The discussions of Lviv intelligentsia would often touch upon the forgotten citizens in Lviv. One of them is Debora Vogel, the unfairly forgotten and unread author, philosopher, and an art critic. She represented the first generation of Galician women admitted to study at the University. Her correspondence with Bruno Schultz reveals a new view on his creativity. Her own texts are impressive and stirring. Danylo Ilnytskyi says that Vogel is very similar to Bohdan Antonych, and it helps talking about Lviv-originated Zeitgeist (spirit of time), about its organic reality, about its convincing and appropriate flair.
How could the author and philosopher help us understand Lviv culture and the city today? The lecture presents a history and a walk through Lviv's places' it is about the memory work, links between generations, sources of fear and responsibility for the past.
Discussants Iryna Starovoyt, Vladyslava Moskalets. Moderator Bohdan Shumylovych
