The Humboldt Forum aims to be a platform for curious minds, from both our urban society and guests from further afield.
Once a month, Counterquestions brings together people with a wide variety of experiences and standpoints for moderated exchange and debate. This discussion series addresses current challenges and events in culture, politics and society, and brings a variety of perspectives to the fore.
Counterquestions discusses some surprising interactions and connections between the sciences and the arts, the Earth and the cosmos, culture and nature, nation and the individual.
As an open platform, it seeks to use a diversity of viewpoints to create approaches for addressing the challenges of our time. A variety of interaction, participation and broadcasting formats will constitute part of an experiment. Join the discussion – live on site or digitally.
Key questions and discussion participants will be announced shortly.
This event series is curated by Stefan Richter.
The events always take place at 7 pm. They are held in German, English and, if necessary, other languages. nguage will be announced for each event.
The events will initially be offered online as digital formats. As soon as accessibility to the Humboldt Forum is possible, the events will be available in hybrid format.
The events are free of charge.
