Panel discussion on Critical Whiteness

Panel discussion

Friday, 16:30 – 18:30


We invited six guests to talk about Critical Whiteness. They all work on strategies to fight racism but because of their perspectives, positions, approaches, theoretical backgrounds and experiences they have different views on the topic.

Together we would like to address the issue at hand and possible conflicts by talking about the following questions: What is Critical Whiteness and do all guests share the same understanding? Which elements are necessary to understand and recognize the mechanisms of racism? Which elements are object to criticism and why?

We would like to talk about possibilities to collectively become capable of acting, even if we do not come to agreements about the aforementioned questions.

Guests: Bafta Sarbo, Massimo Perinelli, Peggy Piesche, Rosa Fava, Tuğba Tanyılmaz, Verena Meyer
