French-German Tel Aviv Night of Philosophy

The French Institute in Israel's Night of philosophy in Tel Aviv, in cooperation with the Goethe Institute and the Israel Democracy Institute.

The event, curated by philosopher Raphael Zagury-Orly, and directed by Tilla Rudel, Cultural Attaché and Deputy Director of the French Institute, will take place on Thursday, May 26, 2016 from 7 p.m. Throughout the night, the public will be able to attend discussions, lectures, readings, panels, concerts and performances. The audience will experience philosophy in a whole new light – by night!

This unique event will bring together nineteen renowned French and German philosophers and over seventy established Israeli intellectuals. With rich and varied topics and formats, these thinkers will discuss, debate and question the fundamental critical issues in our present day societies, with a special focus on democracy and human rights, violence and the future of humanism in the face of scientific technology. The French Institute of Israel and the Goethe Institute have designed an exceptional night-time itinerary, both philosophical and festive, which will take the public through lectures, roundtables, concerts, and movie screenings.

Events will simultaneously happen in 13 locations, all in the area around Rothschild Blvd. and within walking distance of the French Institute of Tel Aviv.
