In the organizer's words:

Michel Friedman and Carsten Brosda in conversation
Moderated by Susanne Beyer, Spiegel


Hostility on the street, demonstrations against refugees, cancel culture, haters on the internet, hatred towards anyone who deviates from the norm or is "foreign": our society seems to be increasingly defined by demarcation and hostility rather than education and openness to the world. Are we losing our moral compass? Where is the tolerance? How do we counter hate? What can hold our society together? What future will we find worth living in?

On the occasion of the staged reading "Fremd" with Sibel Kekilli, which takes place on 1 and 2 June as part of this year's Hamburg Theatre Festival and focuses on Michel Friedman's book of the same name published in September 2022, the publicist, talk show host, lawyer and philosopher Prof. Dr. Michel Friedman and Hamburg's Senator for Culture and Media and President of the German Theatre Association Dr. Carsten Brosda discuss the cohesion and coherence of our society. How do we meet the stranger, the other? And how should we meet them?

What happens to a social community that is defined by equal rights, respect and mutual recognition?

The discussion will be moderated by journalist Susanne Beyer, author for the chief editorial office of the news magazine Der Spiegel.

A cooperation with the Association for the Promotion of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, dialog series "Bridging the gap"
