About the program:
The program focuses on narrative nonfiction that highlights stimulating and provocative issues in the fields of humanity and the environment, philosophy, and psychology, providing an impetus for new perspectives on complex questions rather than a set of ready-made answers to them. Swiss fiction and translations from the many regions of the world are also on the program. Emphasis is placed on addressing topics that promote discourse about diversity in society.
