Inventory of Powerlessness

Part of "The Power of Powerlessness"


90 Min

For “Inventory of Powerlessness” dozens of participants from Berlin of different ages and backgrounds come together at HAU to bundle knowledge about powerlessness and to share experiences. A wide range of individual and often personal situations are brought into a collective setting and explored together with the audience. This gives rise to discussion and impulses which interrogate the structures – social, political and economic – that give context to our lives.
