Keynote Dag Nikolaus Hasse: Edward Said on Andalusia
The Edward W. Said Days, held since 2018, open the Pierre Boulez Saal season, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the passing of the Palestinian literary scholar. The program is centered around keynote lectures by philosopher Dag Nikolaus Hasse and musicologist Kofi Agawu as well as two panel discussions exploring subjects at the intersection of music and postcolonialism—both central aspects of Said’s work.
Daniel Barenboim conducts two concerts of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, which he co-founded with Said.
Curated by Prof. Dr. James Helgeson & Prof. Dr. Regula Rapp
The lectures and symposium will be presented in English.
Admission is free, prior registration is required.
