The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung at the Frankfurt Book Fair, 16–20 October 2019

[Translate to en:] Die RLS auf der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2019
[Translate to en:] Auf der diesjährigen Buchmesse in Frankfurt präsentieren wir eine Auswahl unserer aktuellen Analysen, Bildungsmaterialien, «luxemburg argumente», Studien und die Zeitschrift «LuXemburg».

We’re back! The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung will present its publications in Hall 3.1, Stall G50, at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair. You will find us in the exhibition space for literature and non-fiction with a selection of our current analyses, educational materials, luxemburg argumenten, studies, and the magazine LuXemburg—that is to say, with our diverse print formats. We’ll discuss sustainable alternatives on topics like mobility, housing, food, defuse false attitudes with statistics in topics like migration, define models for peace, and take up feminist demands and perspectives on the labour market.

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung’s goal is to promote emancipatory thought through political education and socially critical analysis, and thereby initiate ecological changes, countermodels critical of capitalism, and approaches towards a just society. These values are also the basis of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Foundation’s student and PhD scholarships. For everyone interested in the Stiftung’s work and its political milieu, RLS staff offer a meeting place to get informed, discuss, ask questions, and exchange opinions between 9:00 and 18:30 every day. The Book Fair is open to industry representatives and the press from Wednesday to Friday. On the weekend the Book Fair will open its doors to the general public.

We invite everyone on Saturday, 19 October to attend get to know some of our publications in conversation with authors and scholars. We will be presenting our latest projects in cooperation with the Karl Dietz Verlag and the neues deutschland newspaper. Stop by, join the discussion, and get to know us better!
