Grand Hotel Abyss

Arts & Culture

In 1923, a group of young radical German thinkers, among them Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno and Herbert Marcuse, came together to form what came to be known as the Frankfurt School. Their ideas, like their lives, profoundly reflected and shaped the shattering events of the twentieth century and forever changed the way we think.

In conversation with Naomi Gryn, Guardian journalist Stuart Jeffries discusses his new book, Grand Hotel Abyss which combines biography, philosophy, and storytelling to reveal the personalities behind the Frankfurt School and show how influential and still relevant their ideas proved to be. 

Part of JW3's Migrations season.
