idea of democratic critique

“If you think that acts of contradicting someone always need to point to better solutions, you haven’t really understood the idea of democratic critique.”

Martin Nonhoff

“Living in contradictions is what we experience every day. Why do we know so little about it?”

Gisela Febel

“Contradictions need to be articulated in order to exist.”

Martin Nonhoff

“Resistance is a democratic right, sometimes a duty. With literature we can find models for this right and think about its limits.”

Gisela Febel
