with Prof. Dr. Dirk Oschmann

With his book "The East: a West German invention", Leipzig literary scholar Dirk Oschmann has clearly hit a nerve: It is one of the best-selling non-fiction books of the past year and was number one on the Spiegel non-fiction bestseller list after its publication in February 2023.

What does it mean to have an Eastern identity imposed on you? An identity that is held responsible for the growing social divide? In his book, Dirk Oschmann shows that more than thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the West still defines itself as the norm and the East as a deviation, and he explains how this "othering" is damaging our society.
