How far should protest go? Are pornos a mirror of society? Is there such a thing as toxic femininity? What can love look like? How do we want to work in the future? And when will we face up to our identity crisis?

The second edition of lit.pop is dedicated to the questions that bother, touch and jolt us. And in all facets of culture: literature, discourse, theater, film, music and analog encounters.

With Alice Hasters, Ilona Hartmann, Betterov, Madita Oeming, Necati Öziri, Moshtari Hilal, Fatma Aydemir, Ole Liebl, Miryam Schellbach, Yasmine M’Barek, Verena Bogner, Jan Kawelke & Vassili Golod, Lea Bonasera, Sophia Fritz, Miriam Davoudvandi, Mithu Sanyal, Antigone Akgün, Maria Popov, Friedemann Karig, Précey & more...

All details and tickets can be found as of January 18 at litcologne.de and under @lit.pop_cologne..
