German Non-Fiction Prize – the Pre-Award event. In conversation with the nominees is an opportunity to listen to the nine nominated authors in conversation on the eve of the German Non-Fiction Prize award ceremony. With analysis and questions on themes such as science and our view of reality, their books sharpen our understanding of many aspects of the here and now.

A series of three conversations bringing together varying combinations of participants will highlight the issues connecting the nominated titles, and how they relate to current major issues, as well as the themes found in the Humboldt Forum in its capacity as a venue for diverse voices.

Bringing together different voices and complex themes in surprising ways, inviting people into new ‘thinking spaces’, is one of the Humboldt Forum’s aims as a new venue for experiences, encounters and learning.

Think along with us, and enrich the discussions with your questions!
