About the podcast
The podcast History Is Not the Past first appeared in summer 2020 with eleven episodes linked in a digital assembly. The project was realized as part of the exhibition Tell me about
yesterday tomorrow (Nov. 27, 2019 to Oct. 18, 2020). Further episodes are planned.
In the episodes broadcast to date we talked about and reflected on the past, on current issues, and on future scenarios. Experts from the fields of scholarship, journalism, art, and culture debated historical and current topics spanning the interaction between history and society. What role does the past play in our life as a society today? How does remembrance help to create a just, post-migration society based on solidarity? Looking back at the past is essential for shaping our democracy, for without remembrance there can be no future.
Most of the episodes were broadcast in German.
