What moves us

The language column

How does one find one's way around the rules of the German language, where do new words come from, and what are the most important changes in the use of the language - for example through digitalisation and sensitisation with regard to the gender issue? These and other exciting topics are the subject of our column on the German language.

Comics from Belgium determined the face of European pictorial history in the 20th century. Today, German comic artists are also searching for new narrative forms.

Particulate matter, climate change, plastic: the question of how we can solve these problems and preserve the Earth for ourselves and future generations is currently occupying people around the world. We bring together international perspectives.
