  • "A Weed That I Am" Performance
    In the Flussbad garden, the rebellious group of young women #rosariotforfuture unleashes a speech of rage against the immobility of the comfortable. They are joined by the collective Sliders, who open a trialogue with the sculpture and the women. May the future not be lost in the rear-view mirror of history!
    Performances at Flussbad Garten Sperlingsgasse 1 10178 Berlin on 25.9./26.9. 02.10/03.10. each at 18:00 Funded by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds and Draußenstadt, Senate Department for Culture and Europe
  • SCREENING "HOTEL AUSCHWITZ" BOOK PRESENTATION "OF HORROR AND GLAMOUR" MOVIEMENTO
    How is the Holocaust currently being processed artistically? What is established, what is provocative? What is even breaking taboos - or have we become accustomed to crossing borders and everything is allowed? These are the questions posed by the book Von Grauen und Glamour: Repräsentationen des Holocaust in den USA und Deutschland (Of Horror and Glamour: Representations of the Holocaust in the USA and Germany), which was published at the beginning of the year and examines current representations of the Shoah in American and German culture. It is written by Americanist Susanne Rohr, who devotes particular attention to the so-called "Holocaust comedy" in literature and film. This provocative genre emerged in the 1990s and has since evolved. The form has now arrived in Germany with Cornelius Schwalm's film Hotel Auschwitz (2019), which shines a merciless spotlight on German memorial culture. In the flick, a team of actors travels to the Auschwitz memorial to record local color for a planned production and must experience there that the place proves to be a touchstone for character, bringing all suppressed emotions to light. The film will be followed by a discussion with director Cornelius Schwalm, producer and actress Katharina Bellena, Americanist and author of "Von Grauen und Glamour" Susanne Rohr and the audience. The conversation will be moderated by Andrew S.Gross, Professor of American Studies at the University of Göttingen. "Are we allowed to laugh about the Holocaust?" A conversation between science and art
