The life philosopher Wilhelm Schmid, the action artist of the Center for Political Beauty, Philipp Ruch and the three clergymen of the House of One, Rabbi Dr. Andreas Nachama, Pastor Gregor Hohberg and Imam Kadir Sanci, in a conversation about Lessing's Nathan the Wise and the coexistence of people of different origins, religion and worldview.
Discussion and audience discussion moderated by Roland Stolte, Director of the House of One Foundation. The House of One is planned as a house, in which a synagogue, a church, a mosque and a central 4th room of encounter are under one roof. Representatives of the religions plan, build and use this building together and thus enter into an intensive dialogue with the city society and among themselves. The competition design for this prayer and teaching house, which is now being realised, was described as a "built ring parabola" in the course of the architectural competition.
In the course of the matinee Lessing's manner, the own is critically examined and the other is viewed in a respectful and willing to learn attitude. The House of One and questions of our living together should thus become the theme. The laying of the foundation stone for the House of One, which will be celebrated on April 14, 2020, on Petriplatz in the middle of Berlin, also draws a connection to Lessing: Lessing's Nathan was premiered in Berlin on April 14, 237 years ago. On the occasion of the laying of the foundation stone of the House of One, this matinee and - referring to this - the unique re-performance of Nathan in Andreas Kriegenburg's production will take place on April 29 at the Deutsches Theater;
The entrance is free. A donation for the House of One is requested.
