House of World Cultures

Prof Gwen Sasse was part of a transdisciplinary discussion at the House of World Cultures in Berlin on 3 October where she gave a lecture in reaction to the work by the artistic collective Slavs and Tatars. The discussion touched on issues such as the perception of time, identity, ‘the self vs. the other’, Russia, Ukraine, Crimea, Orientalism, Slavophiles etc.  The event called ‘Time’s Attack on the Rest of Life: Imagination’ formed part of a four-day opening of the House of World Cultures’ new three-year research agenda ‘100 years Now’.
