The 2015 Salihara International Literary Biennale

October 3, 2015 - October 25, 2015

The 2015 Salihara International Literary Biennale – Bienal Sastra Salihara 2015: “Text and Taste”.

The October of every odd- numbered year is the literary festival month at Komunitas Salihara. This year, the Biennale welcomes the happy coincidence in Indonesia’s participation as Guest of Honor at Frankfurt Book Fair, the largest book fair in the world. Therefore, the 2015 Salihara Literary Biennale also aims to draw the excitement of this world- class event closer to the Indonesian public, by showcasing Indonesian literary works and books that have been translated into English.

The theme of this year’s Biennale is “Text and Taste”. We are of the opinion that knowledge and narration cannot be separated from a sensory and taste experience, that intellectual wealth and culinary wealth are interconnected in literature.

The 2015 Salihara Literary Biennale opens with a book exhibition and book launch, and a dinner that serves and highlights various Indonesian culinary gems that have inspired literary works. Literary readings and discussions are still the ‘entrees’ of the month. In addition, we have also prepared various literary-themed classes, workshops, and a literary tour.
