Shaping the Past: Past as Process
Past as Process is a program of nine films that trouble the notion of fixed histories. The Gestalt of history is not a figure, it is a process of configuration. This process of shaping the past is sculptural, artistic, and creative, which is why film lends itself so well to our understanding of time and memory.

55 Voices for Democracy: The Podcast
Listen now! 55 Voices for Democracy, hosted by New York Times bestselling author Tom Zoellner, was launched by the Thomas Mann House and expanded into a full podcast series. It was inspired by the 55 BBC radio addresses Thomas Mann delivered from his home in California to thousands of listeners in Europe between 1940 and 1945, speaking out against fascism and becoming the most significant German defender of democracy in exile. Tom Zoellner and his co-hosts engage in vivid conversations with intellectuals, artists, and activists about the question of how to renew democracy today.
