The dramaturgical triad of the INN SITU series is rounded off by an accompanying dialogue. Personalities from academia, mainstream culture and music are invited to provide their responses to the exhibition, and we experiment with new discussion formats.

Each of the three speakers will select a photograph from the exhibition and discuss it with conversation partners. Free-flowing dialogue with music, reflecting different points of view, inspired by Orly Zailer’s ANCESTORS exhibition and focusing on the topics of identity, memory and belonging.
