Introduction: Philipp Kanske

Do you want to better? What do you do to change? Session 1 asks what people dream of, who they want to be, how they want to live their lives, and how little steps can mean the world. Do we want to have a better future, or do we want to change the past? We would like to examine the ambivalence of the moment embracing future and past and speak about the vague uneasiness motivating a discontent leading into something new.
