What Is The Word Discussion

At the First Fridays debut of the MoLI exhibition ‘WHAT IS THE WORD’, MoLI director Simon O’Connor speaks with Gavin Quinn, Nicholas Johnson, and Ros Kavanagh from the creative team behind the exhibition. This discussion explores the inspiration, dramaturgy, and design of the exhibition as they relate to the different literary phases of Samuel Beckett’s life and career.

‘WHAT IS THE WORD’ grapples with the struggle to express, a theme present from Beckett’s early work but sharpened by his lived experience of illness. It offers an immersive sensory journey into some of Beckett’s most rarely performed works.
