Cosmopolitan Humanism

Rafael Argullol and Mercedes Monmany traverse centuries of Western culture to find some of the essential problems faced by the contemporary intellectual and artist. They dialogue about their responsibilities as society guides, about the difficulty of that task in the post-truth era, the loss of spirituality and the value of the word.

They urge to dispense with ageing canons, to renounce a culture not committed to the future generations: asking for criticism and self-criticism. They demonstrate trust in the liberation that true art supposes, that of the artist always critical of himself, alive and brave, to guarantee and elevate life.
