Political thinking and radical speaking – Kathrin Röggla’s essays and plays
Our reality resembles a disaster movie, a worst-case scenario, a Shakespearean royal drama: financial crises, media hysteria, private paranoia. Kathrin Röggla uses her critical imagination and her intelligent language to offset that reality. She analyses and dissects the state of our times: fictitious alarms, real-life fears and false desires. With enthusiasm and consistency, wit and playfulness, her essays and plays cast an unsparing light on our present day.
