Moderation: Johan F. Hartle, Rector of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

"It examines how Horkheimer and Adorno created the institutional conditions for this new form of critical intellectuality, how they conducted their teaching and research to enable an emancipatory politics of truth that was concerned with changing the whole.
After more than 20 years, this groundbreaking study of Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno's civic activities is now available again after their return from exile."
