Inviting Utopia: Radical dreams and practices in and beyond the 1989 revolution

18 January 2018, Thursday – 8 pm

Readings and conversation with Elske Rosenfeld, artist and writer, and Max Hertzberg, author.

Both Max and Elske write about the utopian potential of the East German revolution of 1989, and at BuchHafen Max will read from his trilogy (EAST BERLIN SERIES) of political fiction set in a counter-factual post-1990 GDR and talk about how he saw a grassroots democracy as a real possibility. Elske will be reading from a chapter of her forthcoming book A Vocabulary of Revolutionary Gestures which sketches the radical scope of the practices and projections of the 1989 revolution.
