There are more speakers than available places, the Moderator Holger Bergmann of the Association is "The Many" is asking everyone to be brief. "An idea of the Many is not that they occur, as an Institution," he says, not just a speaker, but many.

140 Berlin's cultural institutions have jointly the "Declaration of the Many" will be presented. You want to work for the freedom of art against the attacks of the Right on cultural institutions. In the Text it says: "right-wing groups and parties to interfere with events, want to engage in game plans and working on a re-nationalisation of culture." The signatories want a "völkisch-nationalist Propaganda" is not a Podium to offer and through "dialogue with the contributors and the audience," democracy's strengths.

In Berlin, you will be blessed even on an island of Happiness, but the smaller the place, the greater the threat, says Zimmermann.
