While anti-humanitarian opinions become more and more normal, demands are increasingly voiced not to exclude the right-wing from public discourse. The many-headed writers’ collective Nazis & Goldmund prefers to discuss with those actually interested in discussion. For aren’t we cuter, fresher and more diverse than anything the New/Old/Eternal Right will ever have to offer?

The fifth edition of Interspeeches deals with the question, from which perspective history is written, which memories are justified and put into the center - and how other narratives develop.

In the summer of 2018, the writers’ collective Nazis & Goldmund organised a conference in Berlin entitled Ängst is now a Weltanschauung, that focused on the erosion of democracy. Colleagues from literature and other fields of art came together to create a space for reflection. Their aim was to phrase a straightforward plea against the normalisation of nationalist, illiberal, neo-Nazist tendencies, but also to find positive visions for society and the future of the entire planet. Nazis & Goldmund now go on to continue this engagement in Vienna: On four occasions, Nazis & Goldmund will call for an open plenary sitting at studio brut together with various other platforms in order to devise potential narratives of a pluralistic society based on artistic and academic inputs, to debate and to elaborate strategies. 

Nikita Dhawan is a scholar and professor of political theory. She was the director of the Frankfurt Research Center for Postcolonial Studies at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. The main foci of her research are trans-national feminism, global justice, human rights and democracy and decolonisation. Her most recent publications include Postcolonial Theory: A Critical Introduction (2015, with Maria do Mar Castro Varela) and Negotiating Normativity: Postcolonial Appropriations, Contestations and Transformations (2016). Nikita Dhawan currently teaches at Justus Liebig University in Gießen, Germany.

Nazis & Goldmund describe themselves as a many-headed poetological monster that critically monitors the developments and actions among the European Right and their international alliances, analysing and attacking their narrative strategies and staged interventions.
