Creative Responses to Samuel Beckett’s writing

Opening of the exhibition titled “Creative Responses to Samuel Beckett’s writing” was held in the IUS Art Gallery, on Thursday, January 15, 2015. The exhibition is based on lectures from MA course, Comparative Studies in Drama, which explored the drama for stage, television and radio, fiction and film of Samuel Beckett. Photos, pictures and written pieces in the exhibition are creative responses of students and lecturers on topics and ideas that are primarily focused on Beckett's creative imagination. 

During the exhibition, film screenings were shown as adaptation of some of the Beckett's dramas. Samuel Beckett, playwright and novelist of Irish origin, received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. Although Beckett's novels and dramas are basically pessimistic, they are always imbued with gentle humor and sympathy for the characters. The exhibition will last until January 30, 2015 and is open to all visitors.
