Public discussion about Dries Verhoeven's "Wanna Play?"


Dries Verhoeven‘s intervention „Wanna Play? – Love in Times of Grindr “ has caused strong emotional responses and critics from the queer communities as well as from the general public. Together with HAU Hebbel am Ufer, the artist has decided to temporarily leave his container on Heinrichplatz and face the public discussion in a direct conversation. The event will take place on 5 October, 7pm at HAU2 (Hallesches Ufer 32, 10963 Berlin). Eike Wittrock will moderate, Martin Dannecker will also be on the podium. The debate will be open for contributions from the audience early on. We hope to have a productive discussion.
