“May 68” has come to symbolise a fundamental turning point in society, often associated with challenges to the moral order and “revolutionary” processes in cultural and social life. The latest Forum Z organised by the C²DH will provide a historiographical perspective on an event that attracted the attention of the world’s media; it will analyse the prevailing tensions between a “modern myth” and the real impact that this global movement had on Luxembourg society. This Forum Z will adopt a critical, engaged approach, talking to eyewitnesses and historians and allowing original sources to speak for themselves.
Lecture by Hans Reul (Music Editor at radio station BRF): “Love, Peace, and Protest. Songs, Chansons und Lieder der Generation ‘68”
