discussions #3 Cancelled!

Matthias Alfringhaus with Andreas Görgen and Florian Walter

Discussions about the usefulness and measurability of art and culture are not new. What do we need art and culture for, and what is their value for society?

In times of crisis, these lines of inquiry are more polarising than ever. What sort of perspectives do artists and audience have in a society in which cultural life as a whole is basically cancelled or on hold?

Journalist Matthias Alfringhaus will address these questions in a conversation with the commissioner for Foreign Cultural Policy of the German Federal Foreign Ministry Irmgard Maria Fellner and improvising musician and initiator of the “Büro für akustische Innenraumpflege” concert series Florian Walter.
