Shift to the right, national isolationism, male-driven economy: The old vices are re-conquering the world. What is becoming visible here: a last gasp in the face of impending change or a crushing weight swathing the present-day? What historical horizon of social action can art open up when governments in many places are making us feel that nothing is possible anymore?

A roundtable with scholarship holders from the UdK Graduate School, including Marco Donnarumma, Kerstin Ergenzinger, Lisa Glauer, Bnaya Halperin-Kaddari, Darsha Hewitt, Zeynep Tuna & Nino Klingler, Kiran Kumar and Clarissa Thieme, moderated by Jan Verwoert
