Centered around the theme How Much More?, the New York edition of the Night of Ideas, co-presented by Villa Albertine, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Ukrainian Institute of America, and the Institute of Fine Arts – NYU, , interrogates the over-stimulation and excess of our physical and digital realities. Conversely, what aspects of our contemporary existence are being neglected and need urgent attention? The event examines how we cope with our chaotic present — from the climate crisis, to the proliferation of content online, to political polarization in post-Roe America — and what vision young people, in particular, have of our uncertain future.
