  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: March 28, 2017, 19:00 – 21:00

Meeting with the winners of this year’s prestigious Ferdinand Peroutka Prize: the creator of the TV show Historie.cs, Vladimír Kučera, and Petr Honzejk, a commentator with Hospodářské noviny. Alongside Petr Pithart, a former Czech prime minister and long-time chairman of the Czech Senate, and Pavel Fischer, a former Czech ambassador to France, the two winners will discuss the present and possible future of print media.

It is often said today that print is on the wane and has no future. But what will replace it? And what path do print outlets need to follow if they are to continue to fulfil their role in society?

Evening chaired by Petr Fischer and co-organised by the Ferdinand Peroutka Society.

A Word about Words – samizdat essay

„Besides, to be wary of words and of the horrors that might slumber inconspicuously within them – isn’t this, after all, the true vocation of the intellectual? I recall that André Glucksmann once spoke in Prague about the need for intellectuals to emulate Cassandra: to listen carefully to the words of the powerful, to be watchful of them, to forewarn them of their danger, and to proclaim their dire implications or the evil they might invoke.“
