Monthly Conversation Series starting July 2023

The focus of the series is on the plural present of German society in particular. And on all those without whom this present would look very different.


Max Czollek meets people here who deal with questions of memory.

How do societies remember? What does the much-vaunted German culture of remembrance have to do with the question of belonging? What does memory mean for the German, European and international present?

The focus of the series is on the plural present, especially in German society. And on all those without whom this present would look very different.

The series starts in 2023 with the motto Ist gewesen, moves on to hätte gewesen sein können in 2024, before going through the phases ist and wird sein, to finally arrive at the future tense 2 of wird gewesen sein können.
