Art & Argument for Bloomsday

Art & Argument for Bloomsday

On Saturday 13 June Vincent Landon, Etienne Lullin, Felicity Lunn and Fritz Senn debated the role of the emigrant author. The motion was: this house believes the artist is a prophet in his own land (finding inspiration and recognition only in exile)

Fritz and Vincent (the latter saving the day by stepping in at the last minute) proposed the motion; Felicity and Etienne opposed it with conviction, despite an audience comprising largely of expatriates whose sympathy lay with the opposite side! Many thanks to the fantastic speakers, the engaged audience, the James Joyce Foundation for their assistance and most of all the Irish Embassy in Bern who initiated the event.
