Head-to-Head: A Meeting of Inspired Minds
In their conversation, Bashir Alshihabi, musician, educator, and poet and scholar and curator Josh Kun — the spring 2018 Bosch Fellow in Public Policy at the American Academy in Berlin — bring together Damascus and Los Angeles, and Stuttgart and Berlin to examine music’s role in understanding contemporary migration, displacement, and belonging. Does music determine where home is? What role has music played in cultural change in Germany in the twenty-first century? How does immigration change a city’s soundscape?
