Summary note:
In this collection of essays on the work of, and conversations with, John Berger, thirty of his friends, artistic collaborators, and followers come together to form the first truly international and cross-cultural celebration of his interventions. Berger has for decades, through his poetic humanism, brought together geographically, historically, and socially disparate subjects. His work continues to throw out lifelines across genres, times, and types of experience, opening up radical questions about the meaning of belonging and of community. In keeping with this spirit and in celebration of Berger, the short essays in A Jar of Wild Flowers challenge us all to take the brave step from limited sympathy to real, extended generosity. With contributions from Ali Smith, Julie Christie, Sally Potter, Ram Rahman, Nick Thorpe, Hsiao-Hung Pai, and many others.
