Simone Hain (author of ›Die Salons der Sozialisten‹) and Andrea Plöger (Professor Alice Salomon Hochschule Hellersdorf) will discuss educational policy in the East and the West. They will also refer to the denazifying and emancipating forms of practical »re-education«. The recent dispute about a mural at the Alice Salomon Hochschule with a text by Eugen Gomringer is an example of the struggles of critical practice and (self-)education within educational institutions, this time in Hellersdorf itself.

The video ›die insel‹ by Fari Shams & Arne Schmitt about adult education and post-war modernism in the town of Marl will be put online to compliment the discussion from 16 - 21 June 2021 and will be screened on site.
