Das Zentrum für Politische Schönheit (Center for Political Beauty) is an assault team that establishes moral beauty, political poetry, and human greatness while aiming to preserve humanitarianism. It engages in the most innovative forms of political performance art – an expanded approach to theater: art must hurt, provoke, and rise in revolt. In one basic alliance of terms: aggressive humanism. The presentation by Cesy Leonard, artistic director, film producer, and organisatory committee chair woman of the Center for Political Beauty will be followed by a discussion with the audience. The talk will be held in English language.
The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give space for an open-minded and profound analysis and reflexion of the manifold issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and interna tonal speakers. The talks take place mostly on a Tuesday at 5:30 pm in the conference room 11 at KISD.
The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge.
