Salon deRadika wants to dig up the roots of the radical, find what is constructive within it and understand what is destructive about it. Therefor it is traveling around the continent, showing video portraits about uncomfortable Europeans and gathering people at one table for political meals and discussions. What are the roots of radicalism? Is there something radical in each one of us? Don’t we need radical people now more than ever? When does radicalism get constructive, when destructive? Who decides what is positive and what is negative?
So far Salon Deradika was held in Berlin, Sofia, Belfast and at Schloss Akademie Solitude in Stuttgart. From now on the intent is for it to travel on by itself. Therefor the website www.deradika.de implies the ingredients from videos, recipes and stimuli for discussions, so youthclubs, institutions and cultural centers can hold their own salons with their own food and questions.
