“Die Welt hat ihr eigenes Leben, und als Autor schreibt man nicht über das Tagesgeschehen, sondern über etwas, das größer ist. Und das ist länger gültig.“ Der amerikanische Schriftsteller, Pulitzer- und Nestroypreisträger Ayad Akhtar verfasste für die Politischen Gespräche seinen Text „Jasinder, Naveed, Tariq“. Er tritt in einen poetischen Dialog mit der Gesellschaft und ihrer Welt. Statements von ExpertInnen aus der politischen Theorie und Praxis ergänzen seine Lesung, die über sich ständig wandelnden Strukturen und Ausdrucksformen globaler Machtbeziehungen reflektiert.
