This website offers you an alternative insight into geopolitics, the mechanisms of power and the backgrounds behind international conflicts. How are events around the world related to each other? Which are the real causes and interrelations of developments that are often too complex to fully grasp and comprehend in a world where we get stuffed with information and media bias? Finally, this blog is meant to show you how important it is to be critical, reflective and questioning – because very often the stories we get are not the only truth just because they are printed or broadcast. 😉
QUESTIONING OUR WORLD WITH AN ANTHROPOLOGIST’S EYES
A compilation of my publications – primarily in German, but also in English and other languages – will serve as an analytical tool to take you on a journey. My mission is to reveal to my readers and visitors a different perspective of the world as seen through the eyes of an anthropologist and enthusiastic traveler.
The panopticum of this blog, however, reaches far beyond national barriers as it focuses on regions around the globe and also covers the cultural, social and political life in more and less known areas.
- TRANS-ATLANTIC RELATIONS
(North America – European Union – Russia)
- EAST ASIA & AUSTRALIA
(China/Taiwan – Japan – North Korea – South Korea – Australia)
- NORTHERN AFRICA, AFRICAN HORN & MIDDLE EAST
(Maghreb – Egypt – Sudan/South Sudan – Syria – Israel – Palestine – Turkey – Iran – Iraq – Arabian Gulf – Horn of Africa)
- THE HINDUKUSH (Afghanistan/Pakistan – India)
UNMASKING MOVIE MESSAGES THAT FASCINATE AND IMPRESS
For all those of you interested in movies there’s also a link about reviews of interesting films presented at interational film festivals. In my reviews I want to filter out the cultural aspects and political questions that movies like Der Medicus, Star Wars or Chocolat raise and try to find answers to questions you may have been wondering about yourself.
So don’t miss out and join me in this unique panopticum!
