Irrealis moods are not about the present, past, or future, they are about what might and could have been but never was. In his latest work, Homo Irrealis, André Aciman explores what time means to artists who cannot grasp life in the present. Join his conversation with Michael Vatikiotis to talk about the power of imagination.

Mood irrealis bukan tentang masa kini, masa lalu, atau masa depan, mereka tentang apa yang mungkin dan bisa terjadi, tetapi tidak pernah ada. Dalam karya terbarunya, Homo Irrealis, André Aciman mengeksplorasi apa arti waktu bagi seniman yang tidak bisa memahami kehidupan di masa sekarang. Bergabunglah dengan percakapannya dengan Michael Vatikiotis untuk berbicara tentang kekuatan imajinasi.
