“Fridays for Future”—a legacy of the hippies? Against the backdrop of the current exhibition the question arises whether the legacy of the Summer of Love is still relevant today. Moderator Andrea Thilo talks with art historian Professor Oliver Zybok, who has dealt in depth with the influence of the Beat Generation on the visual arts, and with activist Jamila Tressel, who wrote her first book, Wie wir Schule machen, at the age of 14. The discussion focuses on the rebellion of a young generation, the question of whether art and literature can drive radical change, and on nature and climate protection today.

The Summer of Love is an American myth that has fascinated and inspired people of all generations up to the present day: from the music and fashion industries to literature, it arouses nostalgia in older people and a longing for a polarizing and seemingly liberating youth movement in younger ones. Katharina von Uslar and Edgar Rai present old and new books focusing on the late 1960s in America, including the Vietnam War, the hippie movement, and free love. Actor Florian Lukas reads from different books.

T.C. Boyle Outside Looking In
From Timothy Leary to Today

T.C. Boyle’s latest novel shows that the LSD culture of the Summer of Love is still topical today. In the book, the author tells the story of U.S. psychologist and guru of the hippie movement Timothy Leary, who caused a sensation in the late 1960s with his psychedelic research. Taking Boyle’s novel as the point of departure, moderator Thomas Böhm chats with Swiss publisher Roger Liggenstorfer, the founder of Nachtschatten publishing company, that specializes in publications on drug education.
