FEAR OF LIFE. TH E CITY AS A HABITAT TO ALL
Fr 7.10.2016, 9:30am
What is wrong with the socalled mainstream of society? Is this a politically right wing term? And what does it stand for in this context anyway? Boundaries are constructed, loyalties are interpreted based on nationality and enemy stereotypes conjured up. Whoever argues in this way exploits fears and prejudice, draws from ignorance, and perverts traditions. The symposium, held mainly in English, takes a stand and shows that if we want to stand up for our freedom today, the only solution is enlightenment and not blind faith. Organized by the Department of Social Design – Arts as Urban Innovation.
