Bernard-Henri Lévy is one of France’s most influential philosophers. He is also a journalist and a bestselling writer. He is considered to be the founder of the New Philosophy movement and is a leading thinker on religious issues, genocide and international affairs. His 2013 book, Les Aventures de la vérité—Peinture et philosophie (Grasset/Fondation Maeght), explored the historical interplay of philosophy and art. A play, Hotel Europe, performed in Sarajevo, Venice, Kyiv Odesa, and Paris is a cry of alarm about the crisis facing the European project and the dream behind it.
