On January 27, 2012, the "Frankfurter Kunstverein" in Frankfurt am Main hosts a panel discussion titled " What World are We Living in? Diagnostic Perspectives on the Society of the Present".
The panel consists of Axel Honneth (New York/Frankfurt), Juliane Rebentisch (Frankfurt) and Joseph Vogl (Berlin).
Presentation: Rainer Forst (Frankfurt).
"The opening panel will bring together various perspectives on current situations of upheaval: The global consequences of the financial crisis have already long been raising questions as to our conception of democracy and the extent to which society’s normative orders are of our own making. How can we describe the current transformations? What future will emerge from the present upheavals? And how can they be influenced politically, if at all?
The panel discussion is arranged by the Frankfurter Kunstverein and the Frankfurt University Cluster of Excellence "The Formation of Normative Orders".
