Im Gespräch: Kai Strittmatter und Uli Sigg @ Kulturhaus Helferei
Dec 3 @ 18:30 – 20:30

Kai Strittmatter and Uli Sigg have known China – and each other – for decades: In 1980, Uli Sigg established the first joint venture with a Western company in China and built up the most important collection of contemporary Chinese art. After more than 20 years, Kai Strittmatter resigned from his correspondent position for the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” and the “Tages-Anzeiger” in Beijing this November. In all this time China has changed more than any other country in the world. And the development is far from being finished: Strittmatter argues in his recently published book “Die Neuerfindung der Diktatur” that the Chinese government under Xi Jinping is well on the way to building the perfect surveillance state with the help of modern technology.

In this talk, Kai Strittmatter and Uli Sigg look back on their experiences in China, discuss current developments in the country – and the Western view of them.

The talk will be held in German.
