Romanticism is an era long gone by, but there is still a lot of Romanticising going on. It is a kind of escapism from the farce of normalcy, looking for a last refuge in individuality, longing for death and decay, organizing collective conspiracies, enslaving women, enunciating the dark side of rationality, and decorating the marketing of love affairs, brothels, travel organizers, and candle producers. 100 experts from Dresden will be talking about updating and restoring romantic motives and symptoms.
