On March 20, 2006, the “Annual Day of Political Lies” and the “Worldwide Readings“ were initiated by the Peter-Weiss-Stiftung für Kunst und Politik e.V. In the scope of these events, cultural institutions and interested persons in different cities around the world were invited to participate in organizing readings. Ever since, the “Worldwide Readings” have taken place once or twice a year and are dedicated to internationally relevant political topics such as the Charta 2008 or politically active figures such as Edward Snowden, Anna Politkovskaya, and Mahmoud Darwish. The events and campaigns are meant to contribute to a better awareness of topics and to develop forms of political communication. You can find details about all “Worldwide Readings” here.
