THE POWER OF EMOTIONS
GERMANY 19 | 19
It would appear that our politics are increasingly dictated by emotions. This provides the context for the exhibition The Power of Emotions. Germany 19 | 19 which historians Ute and Bettina Frevert composed together with the Foundation “Remembrance, Responsibility and Future” and the Federal Foundation for the Study of the Communist Dictatorship in Germany. It takes 20 emotions and their contemporary forms of expression as a starting point to portray continuities and discontinuities in the emotions that have dominated the past 100 years and whose intensity today present challenges for politics and society.
The exhibition is under the patronage of Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and is being shown all over the world in various languages in cooperation with the Federal Foreign Offi ce and the Goethe-Institut.
