Brave Contexts
guest: Artur Domosławski, read by: Ewa Skibińska

Reading Outcasts, nominated for the Nike Literary Award in 2017, must be considered difficult. It is a unique summary of Artur Domosławski’s journalist expeditions over many years to the South in the broader sense – from Colombia and Brazil to Palestine, South Sudan or Thailand. It is at the same time a collective and painful panorama of global “naked life”, in which a voice is given to persecuted, devastated people usually deprived of a representative. Artur Domosławski wants to speak on their behalf regardless of the form of their exclusion. Without naivety. With strong self-awareness.

The best-known book by Artur Domosławski, not only in Poland, is his biography of reporter Ryszard Kapuściński. Outcasts is his seventh book.
