Panel and Reading: Schiller’s Polizey


Panel Discussion and Reading
with Hans-Christian von Herrmann, Jan Lazardzig, Anja Lemke, moderated by Eva Geulen

In the moment when the modern police supplants the legally benign “Policey,” it impacts societal ways of doing things in new and profound ways. Schiller’s theatrical fragment Die Polizey and other texts from the sphere of “man’s aesthetic formation” reflect the new brand of “formative polizey,” which also is savvy about monitoring our tastes and modes of action.
