Walls An International Conference
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States + Google Map
The 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall provides an opportunity to revisit this landmark historical moment, assess the cultural, political, and social transformations that have taken place since reunification, while simultaneously reflecting on these questions at a time when walls are once again being built and contemporary forms of exclusion, division, and marginalization are in evidence. Actress Susanne Sachsse will join the conference via Skype, director and producer Can Candan’s film Duvarlar-Mauern-Walls will be screened, and scholars Ilse Helbrecht, David Kim, Kalani Michell, Todd Presner, Yasemin Yildiz, and Maite Zubiaurre will lead a roundtable discussion on these central questions.
