Free entry with registration

Past dates




7:30 PM

From theater plays to children’s books, old texts are re-read and evaluated from today’s perspective. There is a passionate discussion about how to deal with discriminatory language and just such content. Is authorship being restricted – or is society experiencing an urgently needed sensitization in dealing with language and word choice? The Kulturforum takes up the dialogue and invites to a discussion with Prof. Rainer Moritz (head of the Literaturhaus), the authors Verena Carl, Jarôme Robinet and Dr Regula Venske as well as Kampnagel director Amelie Deuflhard. The moderator is Dr Christoph Bungartz (cultural journalist).
