Protest on the street takes many forms. Often, the Fridays for Future demos are vibrant events with music being played, speeches hold, and slogans chanted. Conversations between participants occur spontaneously, and a continuation would often be desired. This is especially the case in conversations between completely different people. Dialogue can change perceptions and clichéd ideas about somebody else fundamentally. With PLAY AND REWIND we created a space for dialogue between members of two different groups that were/are revolutionary at their time: members of Fridays for Future and of the ‘68 generation. In PLAY AND REWIND we discussed the fears, the frustrations, and the incredulous amazement about the political persistence in stuck structures. And we were seeking strategies to overcome these challenges - in the past, and in the present.
From January to June 2020 we organized a series of dialogue events between members of the ‘68 generation and members of the Fridays for Future generation.
