Can violence ever be divine? Terror has always been with us. How can we use art and images to reveal, console and transform its damaging impact?

Heide hosts leading thinkers from Germany, Australia and beyond at the Melbourne event in a national program investigating key philosophical questions of our time. Professors Charlotte Klonk (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin), Fritz Breithaupt (Indiana University, Bloomington), Julian Savalescu (University of Oxford), Desmond Manderson and Fiona Jenkins (Australian National University) will join Heide Director & CEO Natasha Cica in conversation.

This public event is delivered in partnership with the Goethe-Institut.​

The event will be recorded for broadcast on ABC RN Big Ideas.​
