Cu prilejul împlinirii a 30 de ani de la căderea Zidului Berlinului, Ambasada Germaniei a organizat, împreună cu oraşul Leipzig şi parteneri români, în perioada 1-4 octombrie 2019, „Zilele culturale Leipzig la Bucureşti”.
Oraşul Leipzig este considerat deschizător de drum al Revoluţiei Paşnice şi are, din acest motiv, o legătură specială cu România în contextul evenimentelor din 1989. Conferința, susținută în limba în limba engleză, s-a înscris în acest program, organizat de Ambasada Republicii Federale Germania în România și Primăria orașului Leipzig.

Accesul este gratuit.
The series, Ideas in the Agora, opens its third year with two public discussions devoted to the revolutions of 1989. These events are a continuation of our Ideas in the Agora Festival, which has already included a colloquium (on 23 June), also debating the theme of 1989 and of its aftermath. The evenings of 1 and 4 October feature invited guests from Leipzig, in the framework of a Leipzig Week in Bucharest organized by the City of Leipzig, the Embassy of Germany in Romania, and the City of Bucharest. I would like to thank all those, in Germany and in Romania, who made these events possible. This afternoon, the topic of debate is the museum of the future. In our time–presentist (to use François Hartog’s theory of regimes of historicity) or posthistorical (to use Hegel and Kant as read by Kojève and, more recently, Fukuyama)–, the very idea and the future of the museum have been called into question. Three distinguished museum professionals are tackling these issues, suggesting ways in which the museum of the future can still be a significant site of public memory, research, dialogue, education and more – Sorin Antohi
