Discourse

A special event at the international literature festival berlin with Nora Bossong, Daniel Kehlmann, Pankaj Mishra, Sharon Dodua Otoo and Mario Vargas Lllosa.

The current pandemic is one of the greatest challenges. Art and culture, like all areas of life, have been severely affected by the crisis and their very existence is threatened. Culture is a way for citizens to participate in a discourse that gives substance to the process of democratization. Reflections by the invited authors on culture and its role in challenging times constitute the core of the event. How can culture contribute to strengthening democracies and containing nationalist tendencies in times of crisis?
