Roxane van Iperen - Your own well-being first

Why has the middle class become increasingly sensitive to extreme ideas? And why has the ideal of progress made way for a desire for self-preservation? In the theater evening 'Your own well-being first', Roxane van Iperen shows how the need for security can derail into radical sentiments.

Within twenty years, populist parties across Europe have moved from a marginal phenomenon to the center of power. Keeping what you have and nostalgia for the past is increasingly the prevailing attitude to life.

During this evening, Roxanne will be interviewed about the rise of populism, the retreating movement of citizens - away from thinking about progress and equality of opportunity - in an era in which cultural answers to economic problems are being given.

An evening about the 'fear of falling' of the middle class, momfluencers, the wellness right and the desire for radical sentiments. Roxane goes further than her successful essay and shows what society needs to break free from the fear of the unknown other.
