The World After: Bruno Latour and Hartmut Rosa on the consequences of the coronavirus crisis

After two centuries of virtually uninterrupted acceleration, the world is suddenly slowing down. Governments around the world are making decisions that seemed unimaginable just a few months ago. Could the coronavirus crisis also be an opportunity to change our thinking and for new policies? Two of Europe’s leading thinkers discuss new ways of considering our relationship with the world. A conversation between Bruno Latour, Sociologist, anthropologist and philosopher of science & Professor Hartmut Rosa, Director of the Max Weber Center for Advanced Studies, Friedrich Schiller University Jena.
Cooperation: Institut français Germany, Institut franco-allemand IFRA and Literarisches Colloquium Berlin

The Frankfurt Book Fair, the world’s largest event of its kind, opens on October 13, 2020. Last year, over 300,000 visitors came to the exhibition halls – this year this is cancelled due to the Corona pandemic. Weltempfang – the socio-political stage of Frankfurter Buchmesse – will be held digitally for the first time and feature the topic “Europe – connecting cultures”. The agenda covers the most current issues, such as the role of culture, literature and politics during the coronavirus crisis, along with debates on the topics of fleeing refugees, migration and racism. Each day of the book fair (14-18 October 2020) will feature digital Weltempfang events broadcast via livestream. And DW Books, too, gives you the opportunity to participate in these events.
