Şeyda Kurt: HASS. Von der Macht eines widerständigen Gefühls, Hamburg 2023.

Hatred is omnipresent. It roars from the streets or whispers in bourgeois hostility. It grows in parliamentary speeches, crossheads and children's rooms, and certainly not in secret, even if many would like to condemn it there.
Şeyda Kurt brings hatred out of its banishment and sets out on the trail of its resistant potential. In doing so, she is primarily interested in people as the subjects of hate in a capitalist, racist, and patriarchal world. Who are they, these haters, and from which power relations do they come? Who is allowed to hate at all and who is not? Which feelings paralyze, which feelings help not to freeze, and to move on and on towards a more just and tender society?

Recommendation: One day before (06.06.) Seyda Kurt speaks from 18:00 at the KPÖ Bildungsverein about the previous work "Radikale Zärtlichkeit. Why love is political" .

Şeyda Kurt, born in Cologne in 1992, studied philosophy, Roman studies and cultural journalism in Cologne, Bordeaux and Berlin and is a journalist and moderator. She writes for the taz and ZEIT ONLINE, among others.
