With lecturers from Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Eritrea and Iran, the Japanese artist Akira Takayama founded the first McDonald's Radio University in Frankfurt in March 2017. Now in a new artistic vision of the society of the future, this model for the provision of education and knowledge will transform the Mousonturm into a “Bank of Services”. This combination of service, franchise and financial organization is intended to open participation in German society on an economic, financial and cultural level to people irrespective of their residence status. Using the format of a business lunch, the team that founded the Radio University invites you to explore and discuss the basis, challenges and dimensions of such an enterprise with a group of experts while cooking and eating together.

In German and English * Von und mit Akira Takayama/Port B sowie zahlreichen Gästen * Supported by Saison Foundation, Terumo Foundation for Life Science and Art, Stiftung Ploytechnische Gesellschaft and within the context of das Bündnisses internationaler Produktionshäuser, gefördert von der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.
