3sat Topic – The Talk

Presented by Cécil Schortmann

The 80s – years full of contrasts and contradictions. Hardly any decade polarizes as much as this one. For some, it was a fashionable fall from grace with shoulder pads and carrot pants. For others, it was the beginning of a new pop culture.
At the same time, it set the course for the present in terms of the climate crisis, digitalization and role models. What makes this decade of the 20th century so special?
Cécile Schortmann discusses a decade between apocalypse and departure in 3satThema Talk with book author Jens Balzer, radio host Marion Brasch, cabaret artist Fatih Çevikkollu and fashion theorist Barbara Vinken.
