Dream Ursula – Science Fiction and beyond

The event for all fans of fantastic literature – free admission, registration required

Ursula K. Le Guin was one of the great writers of fantastic literature. Her work creates a magical pull with her readers - through crystal clear language, extraordinary settings and above all a fine feeling for the pitfalls and opportunities of human coexistence (and living together with aliens or dragons). Le Guin's work is as fresh as it was 40 years ago, because its political questions (such as inequality, environmental destruction, greed for power) are still driving us today. 

With \"Dream Ursula\" in 2019 we want to continue the science fiction premiere \"Think Ursula\" from 2018. The idea: to shed light on the place and role of the human being in complex world affairs. It is explicitly about people's desires and longings.
