Jürgen Kasek believes in pluralist debate. In his home state Saxony, Donald Trump's election victory has also given Germany's right-wing populists new impetus. Kasek stands up to them.
Over 200,000 people have taken to the streets of Berlin to face down the rise of far-right populism in Germany and Europe. The protesters were demanding more solidarity with marginalized groups.
Right-wing populists are often depicted as angry white men. A new study, however, has found that women are increasingly supporting right-wing populist parties, and they are often more radical than their male peers.
Germany's state prosecutor has ordered the arrest of seven men charged with forming a far-right terror group known as Revolution Chemnitz. The men are accused of planning attacks on migrants in eastern Germany.
Chemnitz's cultural scene is reacting to the media's spotlight on far-right groups with its own set of interventions. One exhibition features Mario Pfeifer's hard-hitting video work about a buried xenophobic attack.
