Description de l'événement

Description

Held by the French Institute of Finland once again, the second Nuit des Idées (Night of Ideas) in Finland will be taking place on the 25th of January 2018 in Helsinki. The programme of the Nuit des Idées in Helsinki will this year also offer a circuit composed of four distinct events, held within the Institute or in neighboring partner locations in the heart of the city, revolving around this year’s theme: “L’imagination au pouvoir / Power to the imagination”. This programme will offer documentary film screenings, artistic performances, and panel discussion that will count with the participation of French and Finnish artists, experts and personalities.

The frontier between imagination and fantasy in power is thin. Nowadays, ideas linked to fantasy in power open the dangerous doors of a rise of populism all over the world and feed in extremisms; religious and political dictatorships whose propaganda rely on imagination are also the scene of the rise of radicalisation. The panel discussion organised in this context will allow speakers from various fields who have contributed to those important topics to share their ideas and exchange with the audience.



Speakers:

Thomas BOUVATIER, psychoanalyst and writer
Emilia PALONEN, Senior lecturer in Political Science at the University of Helsinki
Aleksi PAHKALA, journalist
Jouni HOLAPPA, project coordinator, Criminal Sanctions Agency Finland
Jani LEINONEN, artist

Moderation: Tuomas PELTOMÄKI, news editor, Helsingin Sanomat
