When Biermann left…

Concert and conversation – event in cooperation with the Jazzwerkstatt Berlin
When Biermann left…
When Biermann left – or rather when he was sneakily thrown out – a lot went along with him: Not only many authors and artists but also the hope for a Socialism that would have been worth its name. We will remember this time in the form of a conversation and a concert. Present will be Uschi Brüning, probably the most popular jazz singer of the DDR, Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky, one of the founding fathers of the East German jazz scene as well as Ulli Blobel, founder of the jazz studio Peitz which was banned by the SED authorities in 1982.

Places From the Everyday Life in the DDR – Part 1: The SEZ

The Sport- und Erholungszentrum Berlin-Friedrichshain (SEZ)
Places From the Everyday Life in the DDR – Part 1: The SEZ
„Cheerfulness is present here all year long“ the newspaper “Berliner Zeitung” wrote on March 21st in 1981. The wave pool was probably the most fun. You could also use the tanning beds, sweat in the sauna, enjoy indoor ice skating or observe the activities from one of the many restaurants. No wishes remained unfulfilled here. Berliners and guests of the capitol visited the sports and leisure center in flocks, especially since the prices were very affordable due to the subsidization of the institution. Along numerous photos, the former head of the SEZ, Hartmut Hempel, will tell something about the history and development of the biggest institutions for culture and sports in East Berlin.

Generation ‘89

Film screening and discussion
Generation ‘89
Anke and her friends are at the age of 14 – 18 when the Wall came down. Their parents are teachers, pastors, army officers and journalists. During the transition of youth to adulthood, their entire existence is questioned all of a sudden. They are watching incredulously when the life they had been living until then is being declared invalid from one day to the other. What remains from this childhood in the DDR? Anke Ertner has given the “Generation ‘89” a voice in her interview movie for the first time. The producer and director of the remarkable movie which has already won a number of prizes as well as some protagonists will be present after the screening of the movie and available for a conversation.
