The Power of Utopia

Can culture provide new solutions to the global challenges of our time?

Digitalisation, ecology, justice – what are the global challenges of the future? What role do art and culture play in the debate and development of new perspectives? How can international cultural organisations advance the discussion around questions about the future? Using examples, we will discuss the effect of cultural figures’ ideas on discourses about civil society.

The panel will be held in German, English and French.
