My Europe - Your Europe:
Inside views from non-Europeans

Events as part of the 12th Karlsruhe Dialogues

Information auf Deutsch

What impression does Europe make on people from different cultural backgrounds? This question is at the center of this year’s film night organized collaboratively by the ZKM, the ZAK | Center for Cultural and General Studies and Studium Generale of the Universität Karlsruhe (TH) as well as the television station ARTE. The film night takes place in the context of the 12th Karlsruhe Dialogues under the motto »My Europe – Your Europe: Inside views from non-Europeans.« Speaking at the congress headed by Prof. Dr. Caroline Y. Robertson-von Trotha will be representatives from science and culture, politics, and the economy who do not come from Europe, but nonetheless center their lives here. Both documentary and feature films will be shown on the film night. The spectrum ranges from serious and contemplative themes through to amusing and ironic aspects. The subjects of the films are thus the visions that immigrants have of Europe, and the problems of asylum seekers and undocumented foreigners living in Europe. The finale will be a feature film that approaches the problem of integration with a spark of humor.
