Digitaler Salon: Out of the Dark

Out of the Dark. Darknet, drug-trafficking location and whistleblower’s hideout: should we disenchant the sacred halls of the underworld? And does anonymous surfing make our world appear in the right light? We are going to discover the Darknet on 26 April. Join us for discussion along with pretzels and wine!
