Passaporta Festival 2019© Beniamin Boar 35

The literary discoveries at Saturday's Passa Porta Festival parcours were endless. From stepping into the virtual reality of 'Rozsypne', to being immersed into the colourful but critical illustrations of 'Strange, surprising adventures'. We got inspired by talks on populism and idealism with Ece Temelkuran and Annelies Beck, on gastronomy with Marie NDiaye and Ryoko Sekiguchi, on the art op graphic novels with Brecht Evens, on #metoo with Kristen Roupenian, on political literature with Ali Smith and on starting writing again with Adeline Dieudonné, to name but a few. At 'Café Cliché' and 'Apéro littéraire et musical' our aperitif was well spent and we closed off this exciting day with 'Reading the city'.

On the pretext of choosing is losing — we were not the only ones who wanted to split ourselves in half, right? — we sent out several photographers to report on the day. Here are some impressions.
