The Own & the Foreign
In the context of the three-year project CONFLICT ZONES | ZONES DE CONFLIT a UTE General Assembly was hosted by the city of Bochum, where the Schauspielhaus organized a programme of artistic activities and meetings on the subject of xenophobia — “Das Eigene & das Fremde (The Own & the Foreign)”. At the present time the refugee flow is one of the most pressing issues in Europe; nevertheless it is running the risk of political, especially right-wing populist, exploitation. In this two-article report we try to review the general situation by presenting an account of three performances and related public discussions that invigorated the Schauspielhaus Bochum during the UTE visit.
