What happens when people and societies are denied a sense of the future? How have politicians selling memories of a Utopian past become so successful in recent times? And where might the weaponization of nostalgia lead us?

In conversation with IWM Permanent Fellow IVAN KRASTEV, he will explore the threads and threats that link reality to fiction.
