Losing a life witness

DEATH: Can one grieve over a person who turned 97 years old? Grief can be deeply selfish and liberating collective. But grief can also create communities in the love of the deceased.

Combination of gossip and substance

Philosophy: The fascinating philosophical work Troldmændenes Tid manages to project a narrative about four thinkers and the lives that grievously shaped their thoughts.

Objective, free / independent, socially responsible, critically investigative, activist, subjective and dialogical

Journalism: Via the pragmatic philosophy, Steen Steensen and Harald Hornmoen create great relevance and applicability in their thoughtful writing about journalism.

Photography in a climate time

Copenhagen Photo Festival: Photography can capture nature, document it, but also process nature. Showcase the being, the exotic, the disappearing in a special way.

The more positive aspects of Corona

CORONA: Nothing is in a hurry anymore. Illness, death, and economic ruin are the hallmarks of the pandemic, but in corona-the time also arises cognition and insight, which we should take with us further.

The whole world is overwintering in our time

SELF-HELP: With Wintering, Katherine May has projected an alluring, essayistic self-help book on the art of overwintering.

The identity-political winds of the time

IDENTITY: Hørernes Hærgen is a flame script against the identity-political winds of the time. It is a fiery battle script against contemporary moral currents.

Only ordinary people

EASTERN EUROPE: Thomas Ubbesen and his wife have written a human-like account of the people who lived on the right side of the wall.

Man is like the flower

THE FUTURE: We live in a new age where artificial intelligence develops on its own and becomes our salvation, not our death. It only happens a little later.
