FOTO JAM: LISTEN UP TO THOSE PICTURES!
In FOTO JAM: OHREN AUF HIER KOMMEN BILDER! (Listen up to those Pictures!) we want to learn more about your most beautiful, curious or complicated photos: Our guests have five minutes to inspire the audience.
TOPIC: “Relationships” – whether to family, friends, work, pets, technology or even cooking! We want to hear your stories! All aids are welcome – as long as they are entertaining!
On 27 November 2019, we look forward to jazz and traditional Anatolian music, poetry and politics, performance and a successful evening with you and our guests. This time we welcome Andy Wolff from Regenbogenfabrik Block 109 e.V., the acting students Nihan Kirmanoğlu & Zazie Cayla, the journalist Hiba Obaid, the jazz musician Viktor Wolf, the musical duo Baris Öner & Sofia Paraskevopoulou, the graphic, web designer and photo lover Despina Sarikou and amateur poet Lida Sediqi.
Andy Wolff is a permanent member of the collective of Regenbogenfabrik, which has been focusing on self-help and self-organization for 38 years and offers “help for self-help”. He will remember an event that changed (not only) Kreuzberg and made the Regenbogenfabrik possible in the first place. A personal experience is sometimes also history!
Nihan Kirmanoğlu & Zazie Cayla: Zazie’s experience in circus and Nihan’s bilingualism are two ways they went about expressing their ideas. They are currently studying acting in their second semester at the UdK Berlin and are looking for more physical and vocal possibilities to tell about themselves, their experiences and the world.
Hiba Obaid is a freelance journalist. She wants to communicate as she always has. She has studied Arabic literature and has performed plays in a bar in Aleppo. In Berlin she writes for daily newspapers and magazines and reflects on life in the German capital.
Viktor Wolf was born in 1986 in Freiburg im Breisgau and is a professional musician. In his heart he is a tenor saxophonist. He studied at the Hochschule für Musik Mannheim and the Jazz-Institut Berlin. He founded the Ensemble PanoramaPeng, with which he released his first album “Mountain Lion Dance” in 2017.
Bariş Öner & Sofia Paraskevopoulou: Barış is an actor, musician and still a student of communication sciences. Sofia is a biologist who dreams of becoming a professional musician. What brings the two together is their love of traditional music from the Aegean Sea. This kind of music they want to present in Berlin.
Despina Sarikou is a graphic and web designer from Greece. She is interested in poetry, theatre and photography and loves to engage herself artistically.
Lida Sediqi was born in Afghanistan in 1983 and fled to Germany in 1991. She writes poems and stories, has taken a different direction professionally and is a trained dental assistant. She grew up in the Allgäu, moved to Munich, Augsburg and has now lived in Berlin for two years. Here she got to know and love her boyfriend, who comes from Peru. Her lecture deals with love, family and the feeling of longing.
