In collaboration with the Instituto Francés of Madrid and the Fundación Hispanojudía, tomorrow Wednesday at 6 p.m., the Centro Sefarad-Israel will open the exhibition In Search of Proust’s Jewish Time, with a conversation on the figure of the French author between the writers Pierre Assouline and Juan Manuel Bonet. The exhibition, which can be seen until 30 December, commemorates the French writer on the centenary of his death.
Marcel Proust has a special place in the history of world literature for his work In Search of Lost Time, a novel that took him 14 years to write and in which the author masterfully observes the society around him. His capacity for analysis and observation, the depth of his narrative resources and his concept of time make Proust a unique and timeless creator. This exhibition aims to pay tribute to Proust by analysing the time in which he lived and by tracing his narratives as a living testimony of an era that marked the history of the Jewish communities in France.
The opening of the exhibition will also be attended by the Secretary of State for Foreign and Global Affairs, Ángeles Moreno Bau, and the French Ambassador, Jean-Michel Casa. Admission is free.
