At the beginning of April, Oberhausen has launched an experiment with the blog, an experiment with which it is reacting to the current crisis, a forum in which many voices speak up and many issues are discussed, in which contributions on very different topics appear, sometimes in German, sometimes in English.
The blog thus makes the process of the crisis as visible as those who are affected by it. Last but not least, the blog is intended to be a forerunner and framework for the online festival in mid-May.
The Blog also includes cooperations with the Theater Oberhausen, for example (Now is not the time for criticism!), and a number of film series: the series "From My Window/From Your Window", in cooperation with e-flux, the daily one-minute healing tool from the eponymous series, in cooperation with the One Minutes Foundation, or films by German filmmakers on the question "Can and should one make films now?"
The regular editorial team includes Lars Henrik Gass (initiator and head of the editorial department), Marina Fokidis, Dana Linssen, Petar Milat and Rüdiger Suchsland.
The Blog was made possible with the friendly support of ARTE.
