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

The story of the refugee Sagar, who as a child was forced to leave her native Kabul and spent several years on the move and in refugee camps before her family settled in Prague, where they have lived for 20 years. Her parents opened a restaurant serving traditional Afghan specialities; while Sagar and her siblings help them out, their main focus is on sharing their experience as refugees with those who have never been through that trauma.

Lenka Kuhar Daňhelová will host the discussion with Sagar Ragin.

Power of the Powerless – samizdat essay

„Technology – that child of modern science, which in turn is a child of modern metaphysics – is out of humanity’s control, has ceased to serve us, has enslaved us and compelled us to participate in the preparation of our own destruction. And humanity can find no way out: we have no idea and no faith, and even less do we have a political conception to help us bring things back under human control. We look on helplessly as that coldly functioning machine we have created inevitably engulfs us, tearing us away from our natural affiliations (for instance, from our habitat in the widest sense of that word, including our habitat in the biosphere) just as it removes us from the experience of Being and casts us into the world of “existences”.“

Václav Havel:
Power of the Powerless – samizdat essay, October 1978
