Protests, Poetry and Digital Revolt

Iran is at a crossroads: following the death of President Raisi, executions and political arrests remain a grim reality. However, the resistance is still strong. Hostages are being freed, and EU states are attempting to classify the Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization. What place does literature have in all this? And social media? A conversation between a poet and a social media activist who have paid a high price for their desire for freedom.

With Mahtab Yaghma und Sareh (Zahra Sedighi Hamedani)

Moderated by Tanja Dückers

The event will be held in English and Farsi.
