In a three-part conference (live at Kampnagel as well as a stream on the Kampnagel YouTube channel) the Summer Festival invites experts to discuss with international guests the current effects of the Covid-19 pandemic from sociological, technological-political and pop cultural perspectives.

Talk 3: Procoronastine & argueing – The Summer of Crisis
Klaus Walter in conversation with Julian Warner & Mascha Jacobs

Why is emancipatory, progressive, even left-wing pop so helpless in the corona crisis? Does the pandemic strengthen the hegemony of reactionary, sexist, right-wing pop in Germany? Why does a loud anti-racist movement develop in Germany after the murder of George Floyd, which did not occur after Halle, Hanau or the NSU? And how are these two questions connected? Do Corona and racism form an intersectional crisis? And if so, what to do? What artistic answers are there to these questions? Music? Videos? Literature? We will see and hear.

Mascha Jacobs is editor of the Pop journal, as well as moderator, podcaster (Dear Reader), editor and author. Julian Warner a.k.a. Fehler Kuti, is a musician, dramaturg and cultural scientist. On August 29th, Fehler Kuti is playing a concert for Kampnagel International Summer Festival. Klaus Walter is a radio producer, author and journalist.
