The Power of Emotions. Germany 19 | 19 - Exhibition | Goethe-Institut, San Francisco | Sunday, 01. September 2019

Our politics are increasingly driven by emotions, so it would seem. We are living in an age of permanent agitation. Facts are being called into question by perceived truths. Radicals of every description are attracting more and more attention with simple answers to complex questions.The political centre often does not know how to deal with heated emotions. It is characterised by the political culture of the old Federal Republic, where the need for sobriety prevailed.
The poster exhibition can be visited from September 1st to September 30th at the Goethe Instiut in San Francisco.
