A panel on the most urgent questions of identity politics: Barbara Bleisch in conversation with bestselling authors Margarete Stokowski and Alice Hasters.


Margarete Stokowski (*1986 in Poland) studied philosophy and social sciences at Humboldt University in Berlin and works as a freelance writer. Her weekly column "Oben und unten" (Up and Down) has appeared on Spiegel Online since 2015. In 2019, she was awarded the Kurt Tucholsky Prize for her texts. "Untenrum frei" (Freedom underneath), her debut, advanced to become a standard work of modern feminism.


Alice Hasters (*1989 in Cologne) studied journalism in Munich and works for the Tagesschau and RBB, among others. She talks with Maxi Häcke about feminism and pop culture in the monthly podcast Feuer&Brot. Her autobiographical debut book "What white people don't want to hear about racism but should know", published in 2019, was an instant bestseller.


Barbara Bleisch (*1973 in Basel) is a philosopher and moderator of "Sternstunde Philosophie" (SRF). She is also a regular columnist for the "Tages-Anzeiger" and lecturer in ethics in the "Advanced Studies in Applied Ethics" at the Ethics Centre of the University of Zurich.
