Literature and Philosophy in the Volksbühne in January 2018

On 16 January, the Passagen Gespräche discussion series, in cooperation with the Passagen Verlag, will take place in the Volksbühne for the first time. Peter Engelmann, founder and publisher of the Passagen publishing house, has invited Jean-Luc Nancy, one of the most important contemporary philosophers, to be his first guest. Their conversation will focus on ways to reappropriate democracy in times shaped by political control by international corporations and lobbyists.

On 18 January, iO Tillett Wright will present his book Darling Days: A Memoir on the main stage. Published in Germany last September, it recounts the search for authenticity in a lost place. Living in New York's East Village at the end of the 80's, iO is six years old and doesn't want to be a girl anymore. So iO presents himself as a boy. In addition to iO Tillett Wright, Salome Kiessling, Parisa Madani and Nathalie Seiss will also read. The evening will be moderated by journalist and blogger Kübra Gümüsay.
