Old myths persist in modern society. "Man, after all, still lives everywhere in prehistory" (Ernst Bloch). Myths, both archaic and later developed, have been and continue to be seized upon by various political forces to emotionally reinforce political concerns. National Socialism in particular developed an extensive, instrumentalized myth program.

Myths Power”, coordinated and supervised by Michael Benaglio, is about a constructive-critical approach to “myths” and their differentiated reception in historical and contemporary references. The power and influence of myths – from general-social to its regional aspects – will be brought to the stage, presented and reflected in multiple ways – scientifically as well as artistically.

The historian Eduard Gugenberger, assisted by Roman Schweidlenka, will begin on October 2023 with a lecture on the reception of old myths by political currents – with special reference to National Socialism, world conspiracy theories and the novel “The Enchantment” by Herman Bloch.
