Erling Kagge in conversation with Gabrielle Walker

On Silence

Cartagena 2018, 

Traffic noise, mobile phone alerts and even the hum of our own thoughts... silence seems unachievable. Yet what is it really? Where can it be found? Why is it more important now than ever before? In his book Silence: In the Age of Noise, the Norwegian adventurer and publisher Erling Kagge explores the importance of isolating oneself from the world based on his personal experience and the ideas of classical and modern philosophers, writers and artists. Because silence does not necessarily mean “absence of noise”. It is within reach of everyone, anywhere: we can experience perfect calm in the middle of a desert, but also in the shower or on the dancefloor.
