Between Avarice and Sharing
During her stay at Akademie Schloss Solitude, Zeina Shahla, a fellow in the Cultural Journalism and New Media program, researches the influence of cultural journalism on the foundation of civil norms and cultural values in postwar Germany between 1945 and 1955. As a cultural journalist in Syria, she is concerned with the loss of everyday culture and cultural identity through war, and would like to discuss the extent to which a vibrant cultural journalistic practice in war-torn areas can lead to the preservation and cultivation of cultural practices. Here, Shahla writes about some impressions she had during her visits of »Haus der Geschichte« in Stuttgart.
