Pankow Walk with Annett GröschnerThursday, March 9, 2023 10:00 am – 12:15 pm CET/GMT+1
Meet at the Old Parish Church (Breite Straße 37)
A Neighborhood Tour Along Historical Sites of Civic Engagement
Did you know that just a few feet from campus, only a couple of years ago, senior citzens successfully occupied their senior community center for over 90 days to prevent it from gentrification? Did you know that the secret center of the feminist and queer movement in the GDR dictatorship was the Old Parish Church in Pankow--pretty much right next to the residential district of the political dictatorship elite? Award-winning novelist, historian, performer and former GDR civil rights activist Annett Gröschner takes us to places of civil disobedience against political and economic oppression of the past 50 years. The various historical snapshots will form the basis of a midterm site-specific performance project "Performing Pankow", but for now, the BCB community is warmly invited to join the class and discover the historical layers of our BCB neighborhood in a collective walk.
