I’m Not Who You Think I’m Not #20: Again / Noch einmal
Discussion with Augusto Johne Munjunga, Marietta Böttcher, Michael Stürzenhofecker, Ulrich Wolf, and Mario Pfeifer

With his work Again / Noch einmal (2018) serving as backdrop, artist and filmmaker Mario Pfeifer talks with fellow panelists about the relationship between journalism and society, integration work during the 1990s in rural areas of eastern Germany, and current societal challenges in social work with refugees.

Augusto Johne Munjunga arrived in the GDR in the 1980s as an Angolan contract worker and is now a social worker and head of the African cultural association Palanca e. V. in Eberswalde/Brandenburg.

Marietta Böttcher worked as the Migration and Integration commissioner for the administrative district of Barnim/Brandenburg from the 1990s until her recent retirement.

Mario Pfeifer is an artist and filmmaker who works together with various communities and has realized projects in India, Chile, Brazil, Nigeria, and the US. Since 2016, he has focused increasingly on a divided German society, which began with the project Über Angst und Bildung, Enttäuschung und Gerechtigkeit, Protest und Spaltung in Sachsen / Deutschland (2016) and continues with Again / Noch einmal (2018).

Michael Stürzenhofecker is a journalist working for ZEIT ONLINE in Berlin. He studied history, political science, and philosophy at the University of Potsdam and Humboldt University in Berlin. Stürzenhofecker has published multiple articles on events related to the supermarket incident in Arnsdorf in Saxony.

Ulrich Wolf is a journalist for the Sächsischen Zeitung in Dresden. In 2015, Wolf was honored as German Journalist of the Year for his intensive research into Pegida. Wolf published extensively on the attack on an Iraqi refugee in Arnsdorf/Saxony and followed the so-called “binding trial.”

The event will be held in German.
