Nexus Conference 2019: The Ring
or What Will Rule the World

The Ring: a symbol of limitless power and riches, corrupting the mighty and keeping the masses in servitude. In Wagner’s Die Ring des Nibelungen the old, corrupt world goes up in flames to make way for a new world of brotherhood, beauty and love. But what should the new world look like? On Sunday 10 November, speakers from the worlds of power and the arts will offer their view of what Wagner’s questions mean for us today. Order tickets now!


Cultura Animi II:The World as It Is
