Talk

The second event in the ‘Transformation’ series focuses on challenges in the context of the ongoing German-German unification process. Yana Milev, Christoph Tannert and Thomas Krüger will analyse and discuss the question of how the process should be continued in economic, political, social and cultural terms. Their paths in life crossed in the 1980s in the subculture scene of the GDR. They find a common starting point for their conversation in the artistic and intellectual legacy of the GDR, the relationship between artistic production and academic research, and the role of cultural education in times of transformation.
