Magazine #37

How can we transform crisis knowledge into action? What political, civic and cultural protagonists are able to reform their actions and policies from within? Where can we draw the political energy to consciously shape the necessary large-scale changes which we – whether we like it or not – are going to have to confront in Europe and beyond? We have posed these and other questions to the authors of Magazine #36 "Crisis Knowledge" (German title: Krisenwissen, published autumn/winter 2021). 

An ethicist, a legal and cultural scholar, a writer, an art collective and a technology sociologist demonstrate their own version of "crisis knowledge" by means of interviews and a literary text. The structure of this magazine can be regarded as a call to action, in which contradiction and unresolved questions are given ample space. Crisis knowledge is, after all, by no means a cut-and-dry form of knowledge; it entails thinking out loud, at best, in dialogue with others.
