This collection of stories is the result of an unusual project: Teenagers and young adults who have fled to Germany joined forces with authors Shida Bazyar, Larissa Boehning, Henning Fritsch, Ralph Hammerthaler, Kerstin Hensel, Sabine Peters, Katerina Poladjan and Senthuran Varatharajah to form "storytelling tandems". Seventeen literary narratives emerged from these intensive encounters over a period of one year.

In his essay, art historian Florian Ebner addresses the artistic discourse of Hito Steyerl and reflects on the material and political nature of her images in a digital and globalised world. He touches on general questions about the significance of photography, which is constantly being reassessed and optimised, removing itself from visible reality in this process.

Under the title "Holocaust as Culture: On the Poetics of Imre Kertész", in April 2018, writers, literary scholars, critics, translators and companions of the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, who passed away in 2016, met at the first international conference on Imre Kertész, who also was a member of the Akademie.

The Triadic Ballet by Oskar Schlemmer is one of the most unusual stage works of the 20th century. The documentation for the work describes the development of the costumes from the premiere in 1922 to the reconstruction by dancer and choreographer Gerhard Bohner in 1977, to their appearance within present-day triadic space. One hundred years of history that led to extraordinary success, despite the historical obstacles.
