Questions about compassion, empathy and grief will be discussed with the ministers in 45-minute sessions. This language game of questions and answers follows a precise choreography: five minutes for reflection, then five minutes each time for expressing thoughts in a non-condescending way with mutual respect. It is the questions of all those involved that will open up a shared space for contemplation.

The “Ministry of Compassion” is a collective that emphatically opposes social apathy and the brutalisation of language. It was founded in the autumn of 2018 as part of the “Ängst is now a Weltanschauung” (“Anxiety is now an ideology”) conference initiated at Ballhaus Ost in Berlin by Nazis & Goldmund.
