Why do we need art? How is it connected to politics? How do we make use of facts? How can we dare to judge ethical matters if we continue to misuse religious texts for political reasons? The political thinker and philosopher Hannah Arendt has a surprising suggestion – only art can save us from ourselves!

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.
Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
