Wahlfreiheit abgeschafft: Deutschlernende werden »zugesteuert«

Pressemitteilung

Seit Ende Juni gilt eine neue Verordnung für die Integrationskurse. Seitdem können sich Deutschlernende die Schule nicht mehr selbst aussuchen: Ein Algorithmus weist sie einer Schule zu, die sie nicht mehr wechseln können. Gegen diesen Eingriff in die Wahlfreiheit wehren sich Berliner Sprachschulen und Dozent_innen. In einem Brief an den noch amtierenden Bundesinnenminister fordern sie die Aufhebung der Verordnung.
Auf den ersten Blick schien es eine gute Idee: die „Zusteuerung“ von Deutschlernenden zu bestimmten Sprachschulen. Mit diesem Wort aus der „Just-in-Time“-Produktion von Autoteilen sollte, übertragen auf Sprachschüler_innen, deren punktgenaue Verweisung zur nächstliegenden Schule mit freien Plätzen bezeichnet werden. Wartezeiten sollten so verkürzt und die Auslastung der Kurse verbessert werden. Schon 2011 wurde ein entsprechendes computergestütztes System vorgeschlagen, allerdings für den ländlichen Raum, wo Integrationskurse oft nicht zustande kommen. Weiterlesen →

Babylonia invites… archivio delle memorie migranti

Recording traces – documenting and creating memories of migration through storytelling practices and participatory media

10-12 November
Babylonia, Cuvrystr. 23a

with

Dagmawi Yimer director and filmmaker, Archivio delle Memorie Migranti and
Alexandra D’Onofrio co-founder of Asnada, Dr in Anthropology Media and Performance

WORKSHOP
Recording traces: Our Places.

Storytelling and participatory media through photography and sound
Saturday – november 11th , 9.30 – 18 h

The proposed workshop facilitated by Dagmawi Yimer and Alexandra D’Onofrio has the aim to introduce participants to the use and employment of a variety of media as a means of self-expression, self-reflection and collective research. The topic of the workshop, “My/Our Places”, will introduce participants to two primary methods: photography and sound recordings. It will encourage participants to depict places of their neighbourhoods where they feel particularly at home, welcome and/or connected to others. Though the final outputs of the workshop will be shown at the end of the second day, it is worth to bear in mind that participatory and collaborative methods require time and tend to privilege the learning processes participants go through.

While this is about sharing stories, your privacy and anonymity will be guaranteed.

if you want to join the workshop, please send an email by the 7th November at:
event@babylonia.de

Number of participants is limited, participation on all three days is not a must, but will be prioritised.
Please tell us what motivates you to join the workshop, specify if you can bring any equipment (photocamera, computer, sound recorder), and what languages you understand and/or speak.

The week-end opens with a SCREENING and round table
“Recording traces: documenting and creating memories of migration through storytelling practices and participatory media”
Friday – november 10th, 20.30 h
screening of short movies by Dagmawi Yimer, Alexandra D’Onofrio and from Archivio Memorie Migranti

Manana Insh’allah + One Year Home (film-screening)

Babylonia invites you to a screening of 2 long short films focusing on migrants’ lifes in Melilla, European city on the African continent, and in a refugee camp in Lietzen, close to the German-Polish border: Wednesday, 1st November 2017, 7:30 p.m., at Babylonia!1
Afterwards Q & A with Omar Akahare, author of “One Year Home”. Further discussions very welcome!

  • Manana Insh’allah (2015, by Otto Reuschel, Mattia Carraro, Lea Lazic) Ilies is driving through the city night and day. He is an irregular taxi driver from Morocco who has been living in the Spanish territory since his birth . Nevertheless, he is not able to get the necessary documents in order to regularize his stay and live a peaceful life. Aomar and Mohammed, two of a big group of Moroccan teenagers, are living between the rocks next to the harbor. They wish to be able to slink someday into a commercial ship, which will take them to the long-time yearned European continent. Climako, is a young Cameroonian who has been trapped in Melilla for over 5 years. After his expulsion from the Centre for Temporary Stay of Immigrants, he was forced to live in an improvised camp next to it, where he moved 7 months ago. Prisoner of a turbid bureaucracy, he faces a great uncertainty about his future. Following these three stories, the authors of “Manana Insh’allah” try to depict the migratory situation in Melilla, Spanish exclave in Morocco, and representative icon of the so called reception and integration policies of the European Union. http://www.manana-inshallah.net/
  • One Year Home (2017, by Omar Akahare) “One Year Home” is the first part of an exhibition and film project, which follows the lives of refugees from all over the world, starting in Lietzen in a remote camp on the german-polish border east of Berlin. The syrian filmmaker Omar Akahare and the german photographer Lorenz Kienzle met in that camp at the end of 2015. Omar leaving behind a country at war, starting his new life in Lietzen and Lorenz originally just visiting the camp once, but so fascinated by the people he met, became friends and started working together on this project. They both want to find out how the lives of mothers and fathers, children and single young persons will evolve. What will happen with the expectations they have toward a safer and better future in Germany? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIKHcf_m7rE
