Andy Warhol paints a soup can. Rock and Roll is born. James Baldwin becomes an iconic voice. What thoughts and circumstances were uniting musicians, painters and writers during the richly artistic period following the Second World War? Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Menand takes to the TIFA virtual stage in conversation with Charles Foran to present his book The Free World: Art and Thought in the Cold War, which takes a deep dive into the growth of American culture between 1945 and 1965. In a world that came all too close to totalitarianism, an unparalleled period in cultural history was forged. Tune in to a fascinating talk with Louis Menand on the conditions that led to a magical intersection between the right artists and the right moment in time.
