György Konrád in Venice

Photograph of György Konrád, president of PEN International (1990-93), waiting in Venice to board a ship transporting PEN members to the 59th PEN International Congress in Hvar/Dubrovnik, 1993, which took place on 19-24 April and was titled Place and Destiny. As tensions rose in Bosnia and Herzegovina throughout the early 1990s, some PEN members had risen concerns about the 59th Congress being held in Croatia; others boarded a ship in Venice and alighted at Hvar to gather in Croatia. This photograph was taken by Damil Kalogjera.

Fotografía de György Konrád, presidente de PEN International (1990-93), esperando en Venecia para subir a un barco que trasladaría miembros de PEN hacia el 59o Congreso de PEN Internacional en Hvar/Dubrovnik, Croacia, 1993, que tuvo lugar del 19 al 24 de abril y cuyo título fue Place and Destiny. Debido a las crecientes tensiones políticas en Bosnia y Herzegovina a principios de los 1990s, algunos miembros de PEN habían expresado sus dudas sobre la idoneidad de celebrar el 59o Congreso en Croacia; otros decidieron zarpar desde Venecia para llegar a Hvar y reunirse en Croacia. La fotografía fue tomada por Damil Kalogjera.
