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.

Readings with music: Myth power integrates the modern Hinterberg cultural scene: On April 2024, the event “Enchanted Literature” offers fairy-tale literary images by the authors Manfred Stangl, Gabriele Marchner-Trieb, Angela Buschenreiter, Michael Benaglio, with musical accompaniment by Roots Beyond. On August 9, 2024, the traditional “Underground” program by Michael Benaglio and the duo Zeitenklänge will follow.
