Eros, the cunning god, reignites the passion for dis-
course. What makes him strong is what makes others despair. But what makes us resilient?

Opening and symposium "Resilience: Strength even in the face of headwinds" with art discourse on the exhibition

Resilience is the power to overcome difficult situations, to stand up to impositions and insults. But who knows the secrets of not sinking in stormy times? Artists have the corresponding sensitivity, sense of life and spirit of resistance. With the power of imagination, creativity and the ability to live with uncertainty, they boost the future.
Psychologist Tatjana Schnell presents the latest scientific findings on this subject
and biochemist and bestselling author Christina Berndt knows what makes the soul strong.
