 Visual Culture Research Center and Political Critique invite you to the meeting with German author and publisher Katharina Raabe, which will take place on Saturday, November 22nd at 18:00.
 
Events of the last year in Ukraine have influenced political consensus of Europe, as well as its  intellectual life. In Germany, whose humanitarian politics is largely focused on the Eastern Europe, appeared public intellectuals, who “understand Putin”, on the one hand, and “discoverers of Ukraine” – on the other. In German public sphere “Ukrainian crisis” became not only subject to numerous media debates and political speculations, but also reason for redefining the experience of division, “reunion”, revolution, and civil resistance, especially, in the context of recent 25thAnniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. How does Ukraine arise in the German intellectual and media discourses? Who are Ukrainian public intellectuals in Germany? Which narratives are dominant in the public sphere?
 
Katharina Raabe – editor of one of the biggest German publishing housesSuhrkamp.
