At the start of the new season, Schauspielhaus Bochum establishes a political opening speech for the first time. The historian Philipp Blom is an attentive chronicler of the recent European past and present. His books The Vertigo Years: Change And Culture in the West about Europe before the First World War and Fracture: Life and Culture in the West about culture and life between the war years here and in the US are internationally acclaimed bestsellers. In his recent essay What‘s At Stake he describes the dangers that climate change and automation pose to our free society. Blom calls for a new enlightenment under the auspices of the 21st century.
