Wednesday 01.06.2016 7:30 PM | Saal

Admission: free

Organizer: Werkstatt der Kulturen/ Werkstatt Religions and World Views



Am I allowed to show who I am?

Reading and discussion with Fereshta Ludin, author of „Die Enthüllung der Fereshta Ludin. Die mit dem Kopftuch“

The discussion will be led by Dr. Annette Kreutziger-Herr, Dr. Aaron Hammel and Dr. Alexander Bischkopf. Event will be held in German.

Fereshta Ludin's book describes, as one of many example, how and where civil society and religion realign their relationship. The headscarf of Muslim women is this starting point for further thought. In the reading and discussion, ideas, concerns and proposals will be addressed - among the panellists and with the public.

Fereshta Ludin is the daughter of an Afghan diplomat, went to school Saudi Arabia, is a mother of a patchwork family and world citizen. An avowed Muslim that seeks to actively shape Germany rather than remain a spectator.

More information about the book can be found on the website of Levante-Verlag.

Check out this exciting interview (in German) with Ludin in MiGAZIN from April 2015. You can also read a review (in German) of her autobiography in MiGAZIN from May 2015.

Werkstatt Religions and World Views


The Werkstatt Religions and World Views is an open workshop, primarily consisting of people from the education sector, who out of private or professional interest seek an interfaith dialog.

Religions and world views form the basis of every cultural identity. However, experience shows that limited knowledge about them prevails, and direct encounters with 'other' religions generally do not take place. The aim of this workshop is to open up and encourage direct dialog between different religions and world views.




The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN recognizes the significance of interfaith and inter-philosophical discourse and seeks to offer a platform for it to continue.

Members of various religious and world view communities make up the workshop group and come from a wide and impressive range of backgrounds: Protestantism, Catholicism, Serb-Orthodox Christianity, Sunni Islam, Sufism, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Baha’ism to Neo-Paganism and secular Humanism. The participants of the workshop do not view themselves as representatives of their communities; rather, as individuals with a specific religious background or world-view. The dialog draws strongly from the personal biographies of the participants.


The workshop takes place monthly. Focusing on a different theme every year, the group also puts on a Further Education seminar for teachers and other disseminators, as well as discussion meetings now and again.


The facilities of the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN are accessible to wheelchair users. Please call us in advance on +49 (0)30 60 97 70-0 to ensure proper access support.
