On Truth (and Lies) in Democracy

November 7, 2013

Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Co-presented by BAM and the Onassis Cultural Center NY
Hosted by Simon Critchley
With Thomas Ostermeier
In conjunction with An Enemy of the People
Director Thomas Ostermeier and philosopher Simon Critchley debate one of the most lasting Hellenic ideals: democracy. They explore Athenian democracy in the context of Ostermeier’s production of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People and tackle the question: does our contemporary notion of democracy still signify government by the people, for the people?
