Monographic dedicated to celebrate 90th anniversary of Stanisław Lem's birth.

Stanisław Lem was one of the reformists of science fiction literature and, alongside Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino, one of the key figures in fantastic literature. It was scientific fantasy that brought him worldwide renown, but it is in his essays that vast knowledge and the originality of his philosophical thinking is best displayed. Stanisław Lem was, furthermore, a visionary, who back in the 60s predicted the development of computer technology and virtual worlds in his work entitled Category:Summa Technologiae.

His books, which include Cyberiada and Solaris, have been translated into 40 languages and have sold upwards of 27 million copies. 2011 is the 90th anniversary of his birth and, to mark this occasion, Kosmopolis shall dedicate a special monographic presentation, including debates, performances and unreleased audiovisual material.

With the collaboration of the Instituto Polaco de Cultura de Madrid.
