About this Event


Coming Together for Diverse Needs

In English and German

With Anastasia Zagorni, Nataliia Kovalenko, Khashayar Razghandi and Hamid Nowzari.

As representatives of two organisations, GUTEmission e.V. and Verein Iranischer Flüchtlinge e.V., we will be sharing our perspectives and examples of creating organisations, programmes and activities where newcomers can come together, develop their competences and become active in their communities. Important in this process is the connection between migrant groups from various generations and backgrounds. Through our conversation we will outline what already exists and what is necessary to accommodate various needs. Our work, in many ways, originates from the situation of urgency but we need intercultural, structured and long-term approaches that establish the common ground and allow differentiation when and where needed.

Revisiting Home 30 years later

In English and German

With Conny Ottinger and Martin von Allmen

Saxophonist, singer and performance art maker Conny Ottinger is the founder of Windfalls, ‘some kind of jazz’ band, bringing together musicians of different roots with Eastern European and Alpine influences. Martin von Allmen started his career in classical composing and singing and later developed strong interest in jazz and free improvison percussions and drums. He has extensive experience in concert performing, as well as working in theatre and as a sound artist.

Starting with the story about Conny’s recent visit to her home in Poland, decades after she left as a child, and the body memory triggered in relation to it, together they will share ideas about this new collaborative project referring to a ‘house’ or a place - as a point on a geographical map, a site for memories, or a spiritual home of sorts. Accompanied with sound interventions through the day, as well as in this presentation, and a short musical performance at the end of the day.


No Borders, with international participants of the Refugee Week

In English and German

An encounter with the participants of the programme about their impressions from this week’s artistic actions in public spaces in and around Haus der Statistik at Alexanderplatz and the content of their educational trip, offering young people, influencers and aspiring professionals in youth and educational work a framework for reflection and encounter on the topic of current refugee work, wars and conflicts, Europe and its borders.

Participants from France, Germany and former Yugoslav territories will report on the week spent thinking of and researching border politics together in Germany and what knowledge they have gained about human rights and the rights of minorities in the local region and Europe. We will find out what clues through Berlin's history, a formerly divided city that has experienced different kinds of migration and flight, have young people found most useful to understand or better understand current socio-political developments.
