The Middle East as a utopia?

Zionism, socialism, pan-Arabism, Islamic Republic: The Middle East and its history in the course of the twentieth century has been shaped by utopian ideologies and ideas. However, today this global region is often perceived only as a space of chaos: violence, seemingly intractable conflicts and corruption. Do literary and artistic utopias of the Middle East still have something to say? Where could concrete starting points for new utopias in the region lie, beyond the realm of day-to-day politics? This is what Simon Wolfgang Fuchs (University of Freiburg) and Caspar Battegay (University of Basel) discuss with author and historian Dana von Suffrin, organization researcher Ayad Al-Ani, Islamic Studies scholar Gudrun Krämer at the Neumarkt Theater in Zurich. Following the discussion, a concert by the Israeli pianist Guy Mintus is planned.

On occasion of their 20th anniversary, members of Die Junge Akademie invite the public to take part in various events in diverse spaces within the event series diejungeakademie@ and foster dialogue with the audience on scientific topics. This event is held in cooperation with the Omanut Association and the Neumarkt Theater Zurich. Admission is free of charge.

Discussions will take place in German. A livestream will be available on the YouTube channel of Die Junge Akademie.
