The advent of the Bolivarian Revolution has pushed Venezuela into chaos and misery. The massive migration phenomenon represents one of the most painful consequences. Millions are Venezuelans who have abandoned their place of origin. Among them writers, intellectuals, journalists. The literature of migration or the Venezuelan diaspora begins to consolidate as a phenomenon that multiplies the voices and spaces of enunciation. The result is a choral and at the same time fragmentary story, but also a distant focus, not always nostalgic, of a country gripped by violence and the significant loss of democratic spaces. The writer Juan Carlos Chirinos, currently living in Spain, presents “su mirada desde la distancia”.

The seminar will be held in Spanish.
