Gysi vs. Sonneborn

  • Chancellor duel of hearts
  • In dialogue

A very left thing. A two-person play. A ping-pong with flashes of inspiration. Each sparring with the other. The accomplished opposition politician and the equally accomplished clown united in argument: in action against political routine. Gregor Gysi, who wants to make politics richer with wit; Martin Sonneborn, who gives politics a poor report card with his wit. Two test in conversation how far one has to go to be out of the ordinary.

“The PARTEI and the Left in power: Martin, there would be something going on in Germany!” – “Punk! It would be punk. Pure punk!”

Gregor Gysi is a lawyer, politician, author and moderator; from 2005 to 2015 he was parliamentary group leader of the Left Party.

Martin Sonneborn is a satirist, journalist and chairman of the PARTEI.

Moderation: Katja Thorwarth, Frankfurter Rundschau
