The dialogue platform PERSPEKTIVWECHSEL brings together artists and scientists from various disciplines for an evening of conversation at ATELIERFRANKFURT. Connected to this exchange is the hope for a new perspective on the world, one that makes us aware of the complexity of the existential challenges of our time.


On the third evening of discussion – this time on the topic of “Radioactivity – Curse or Blessing?” – Saori Kaneko, Richard Welz, Prof. Dr. Clemens Walter, and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Graeff will engage in a conversation about the various facets of radioactivity and where it encounters us, whether naturally occurring or human-made. It can serve both as a therapy and a cause of diseases. For some, nuclear energy and nuclear weapons are indispensable for the energy transition and our geopolitical security, while for others, they represent the greatest existential threat. Radioactivity polarizes like few other physical phenomena.


How can we achieve a constructive societal discourse on this topic?
