She is a legal psychologist, expert on queer life and love, and bestselling author. He is one of the most amusing and enigmatic cabaret artists in the country. Both are united by a fascination for an old psychological and moral fundamental category: evil. Julia Shaw, who works at University College London, explores the dark side of our psyche in Evil – The Psychology of Our Abysses and examines the fascination of psychopaths as well as the everyday repression mechanisms of one's own psyche. Florian Schroeder's research Unter Wahnsinnigen: Warum wir das Böse braucht (Among Madmen: Why We Need Evil) provides a description of the state of our time and also confronts himself with his own history. How we would like to easily separate, like or bash friend from foe. But humans are not that simple.
