»An invigorating look at our new potentials, Here and Now draws a comprehensive and strong picture of the processes and directions of change we are currently involved in. Pinpointing the strategies and tools that will help us to provoke a radically new thinking, a new living, in a better future, this book offers large answers and big solutions.«

»Exhilarating!«

. . . or that’s how the press reaction to Here and Now might sound. Based on the presentation of a fictional book, in her new work Anna Mendelssohn dedicates herself to the great issues of our time: how do we want to live in the future?

Ranging from the apocalypse to utopia, from battle-cries to user manuals, the multitude of answers in recent publications seems to suggest that we are again living in times that call for rigorous instructions and guidelines, for prophets and visionaries. We need to know where we are heading. Using the format of a book presentation the performance Here and Now takes a deeper look at this longing, asking who are the sages of our time and what is it that we wish to hear from them.
