Revolution—the term is derived from the Latin revolutio, meaning “upheaval.” A revolution is always preceded by the realization that the existing order must be dissolved, changed, or at least reinterpreted. We are devoting this issue of JMB Journal to the major and minor upheavals that change the world.
»What revolution would you welcome?«We posed this question not only to businesswoman Susanne Klatten and writer David Grossman, recipients of this year’s Prize for Understanding and Tolerance, but also to the staff of Securitas, who work as hosts in our museum and look after our visitors. Their answers are sometimes surprising, some highly personal and others global in outlook.
With texts by Moshe Zimmermann, Léontine Meijer-van Mensch, Peter Schäfer, Nina Breher, Cilly Kugelmann, Jörg Waßmer, Heinrich Heine and with photos by Stephan Pramme.
Note on the print edition: The portrait of Heinrich Hoffmann on page 23 does not show Kurt Eisner (1867-1919), but Gustav Landauer (1870-1919). Landauer was a writer, an anarchist and war opponent; in November 1918 he joined the Eisner government in the service of the Munich Revolution.
