The Federal Foreign Office and its partners invite you to attend the third "Long Night of Ideas" on June 1, 2018 between 6 and 12 pm.

In times of echo chambers and populism, we place the theme of open society at the center of the Long Night and at the same time want to make visible the diverse work of foreign cultural and educational policy in Germany.

In prominent locations in the Berlin cultural landscape, from the Humboldt Forum to the Gorki Theater to the Silent Green Quartier in Wedding, we will show you the range of foreign cultural and educational policy in more than a dozen events. What can we do about the culture and education of increasing skepticism about Europe? What must we do to build up and protect pre-political freedom for art and culture, science and opinion? How will Artificial Intelligence shape our society? These questions and much more are at the center of a total of 14 events - from exhibitions, interactive experiences, music, theater and literature to poetry slam.

This year, Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House e. V. is participating in a Twitter project: accompanying the other events of the Long Night of Ideas, Fellows of the Villa Aurora will lead a discussion on open society and postnational cultural politics on Twitter. Against the background of their experiences with other cultural areas our fellows will fan the debate on Twitter under the hashtag # LNDI2018 with their observations, arguments and comments on the events of the Long Night of Ideas 2018. Be there!
