It can get loud with everyone screaming and shouting. Sometimes it’s healthy but overdoing it can poison the social climate. Meanwhile we might miss something much quieter, yet incomparably more powerful: action. Precisely when we act, without too many words, is when we can accomplish something powerful. This evening's Diskurs is about action and how it transforms. How can we take action against our problems, and conflicts, instead of only talking about them? How can action be used to change society? Does art, especially, contain within it a promise of transformation? While screaming mouths fight for dominance, perhaps the ground is already being dug up around them.
Discourse in German with:
Alice Creischer (artist, author)
Dorothea von Hantelmann (art historian, curator)
Maria Schmidt (activist, Extinction Rebellion)
Zoë Claire Miller (artist, speaker bbk berlin, co-founder Berlin Art Prize)
Moderation: Alexander Koch
