Storytelling is one of the basic cultural techniques for spreading knowledge and ideas. Whether in political discourse, fables or poems: The narratives in which stories are told play a crucial role. At the closing panel of the Performative Book Fair, we would like to interview people who have made it their mission to focus on stories of marginalised people. Which stories are told, which are kept silent? What does that do to societies? And how can stories that contradict each other stand side by side? Telling many stories in their own aesthetics and language, collectively, multi-perspectively and self-determined - this remains one of the most important political tools for emancipation.

With Nhi Le, Raphaelle Red, Eliah (Academy of Unreason) and Svenja Reiner (moderator).
