Pepe Escobar – The New Great Game

Pepe Escobar

My introduction to Pepe Escobar was through watching the RT.com program Cross Talk hosted by Peter Lavell.

Pepe Escobar’s thoughtful and well informed commentaries are usually hurried affairs because he is working within the time constraints of a current affairs programs.

Given the opportunity the well travelled [and very insightful] Pepe Escobar could talk for hours.

The following 45 minute lecture provides Pepe Escobar with almost enough time to introduce to his audience the Old Silk Road, the New Silk Road, the BRICS and his thoughts on the American response to this changing world.

The Haus der Kulturen der Welt is a place for international contemporary arts and a forum for current developments and discourse.

Located in the capital city of Berlin, it presents artistic productions from around the world, with a special focus on non-European cultures and societies.

Visual arts, music, literature, performing arts, film, academic discussions and digital media are all linked in an interdisciplinary programme that is unique in Europe.

In a time when local and national issues are inextricably tied to international developments, the Haus enables the voices of the world to be heard in their great diversity and gives them a productive place in the inner-societal dialogue.

HKW has launched a new four-year project called 100 Years of Now.

Until 2018, exhibitions, musical and educational projects, discourses and plays will deal with the global transformations and classification systems that emerged from the First World War.

Anyone who wants to understand our age needs new frames of reference.
