HANDBUCH DER WILLKOMMENSKULTUR ART NO STOP

A European Erasmus project combines art and social work
Landsberg: The European Union supports a socio-cultural cooperation project in which the association dieKunstBauStelle takes over the realization of the digital design.
The qualification and experience of the partners from international socio-cultural work convinced the EU Commission, which is providing 200,000 euros for this purpose.
For the current working session, eight artists, social workers, and heads of social organizations came to Landsberg for four days in February.
Participants in the international meeting in Landsberg were the heads of a cultural and social center in Brindisi (Italy), an integration center for refugees and cultural center in Granada (Spain), a street art association in Amsterdam (Netherlands), and the socio-cultural association dieKunstBauStelle from Landsberg, which was the host.
The other locations of the funded EU project “Art No Stop” are Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Working sessions will be held there to pool the experience of sociocultural projects in a handbook, training courses, and an online platform.

INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION FutureFlashback

On 1 March, the exhibition of the project “FutureFlashback” will be opened at the T. C. Istanbul University by the Dean Prof. Dr. Hayati Develi, Head of Department of the Faculty of Literature Prof. Dr. Necdet Neydim, and the Turkish project leader Dr. Ensa Filazi. The project leader of the IELEV School, Stephan Reischl, who co-developed the concept with Wolfgang Hauck, will also participate.
The project leader and initiator, Wolfgang Hauck, from the association dieKunstBauStelle, will travel to Istanbul with Anke Neudel, the association’s project coordinator for international cooperation.
The project began in 2019 at the secondary school in Landsberg and gradually spread further and further internationally. First came the public school İELEV in Istanbul, then schools in Ukraine, and then Istanbul University with the Faculty of Literature.
In order to make this project multilingual, the Interpreting and Translating (German-Turkish) Department of Istanbul University was involved in this project and contributed to the intercultural cooperation.
A total of 50 audio contributions from the students were divided among the students from different semesters of the department, transcribed, translated into Turkish, and read in again as audio contributions. The division of work between the students was assisted by Alper Akbay, a graduate of the department. Transcriptions, translations as well as audio recordings were completed by Ayşenur Yavuz, Sümeyra Tatlı, Deniz Varol, Yasin Atar, Hatice İnci, Tolga Maden, Sümmeye Saliha Kantar, Sema Durmuşlar, Şimal İda evik and Ersin İşbilir. The official website was translated into Turkish by graduate Suna Yıldırım.
Now, for the first time, all language versions are being shown in Istanbul. It is just too tragic that the exhibition in Ukraine was launched in January 2021 and now the traveling exhibition has to be postponed.
The first part of the exhibition was already on display in Landsberg on the main square. There, one could call up the sound recordings of the young people’s contributions with QR codes. This connected the digital and analog worlds,
The digital exhibition is independent and can be accessed at:
The various international participations were supported by:
Kultur macht stark, Türkische Gemeinde ein Deutschland Mein Land- Zeit für Zukunft, Deutsch-Türkische Jugendbrücke, Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future EVZ, Multicultural Ukraine (MKUA).
Future Flashback Zoom 2020

Future Flashback – first German-Turkish zoom meeting

Future Flashback – first German-Turkish zoom meeting

On October 6, pupils from Landsberg and Istanbul met for the first time in virtual space via Zoom.

The Turkish pupils impressed with their German language skills and gave a small insight into the everyday life of the IELEV school in Turkey.

On the German side, young people presented their school and reported on the current teaching situation caused by the corona pandemic at the secondary school in Landsberg am Lech.

The pupils’ meeting was led by Wolfgang Hauck (project manager) and Gonzalo Orce (media designer) in Landsberg and Stephan Reischl, project coordinator in Turkey, and the German teacher Pelin Demirci in Istanbul.

What unites both sides – the journey from the future to the present “Future Flashback”. It is precisely this joint project that is now to serve as a connecting bridge and encourage young people to develop their ideas across borders.

In the course of the first meeting, the individual students were able to share their own ideas that had already been developed and commonalities of the respective ideas about the future were quickly identified.

We can be curious to see what the pupils of the German-Turkish cooperation will continue to tell us about our possible future!

Tamam – a music video is created

“There are so many people, of whom many foreign people show their love without thinking of profit
People serve people in crises and many moments
People turn to people when they are cold
People donate to people, people educate people. “

This is the first sentence of the song «Menschen» by the German Rapper UMSE. As the title says, this is devoted to the human being: there are good, evil, and those in between, there are big, small, old, young, very different characters with different character traits.

What is clear, however, is that more people want a very specific variety: “Positive people, I mean these people, who are never aggressive and restrict themselves to harmony.”

New, own video for the song

Because the song is so important from the very moment of his message and fits perfectly into our time, we decided to use it for our project. After all, it is about humanity, tolerance and integration. On the one hand, we will produce a new video of the song with the refugees as well as the pupils of the IKG. On the other hand, we would like to re-record it and let it be re-recorded by the project participants. The idea was for Tobias Dengler, grammar school teacher for German and history at the IKG, currently “seconded” as the class leader of the refugee classes at the Berufsschule.

Language challenge

However, in order to produce moving pictures to the song, it is important for us to get involved in the language and to understand the text, which is of course not self-evident to our young refugees. That is why we went through it in groupwork – in each case with the students of the IKG as mentors – have read it, discussed it and then finally gather ideas for the individual sequences to the video. For only those who understand the partly quite profound lines is able to realize a pictorial realization.

“The song fits very well with our theme,” says 16-year-old Sophia, who accompanies the refugees as an IKG student. “We explain to the refugees what they are doing and how the lines are to be understood.” The song shows that there are other sides and opportunities for people to get a better deal with each other. “

“I think it’s good that we’re doing something with music,” says 18-year-old Saimon from Eritrea. “It’s fun to make a new video for the song, I like the song because it’s about it “I can already understand the text, but sometimes it is hard for me to express myself.” Speaking and learning the German language is – apart from that From co-operation with German youngsters – an additional important reason for participating in the project. “Speak German and have fun – that’s why I come,” Saimon emphasizes.

Moving pictures

We have already begun with the visual implementation. That can be a lot of fun. But also a lot of patience had to be applied. “One is not the first, the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth, who has to make the decision, so do it or throw a coin,” raps Umse. The fact that it is not easy to show the thrown coin as a video sequence, our project participants have been able to convince themselves. It takes a few attempts until everyone is completely satisfied. Finally everything has to be right: light, shadow, position, litter of the coin, etc.

The 17-year-old Max, a student of the IKG, who is almost from the beginning, finds this project phase the most exciting. “It ‘s great to have the big picture now, to create a new music video, which makes sense and motivates, because music is added as a new component to the project, and it’ s even more interesting Is so multi-dimensional.”

Everyone can, of course, bring their own ideas and suggestions – everything is taken into account and tried to realize. Zeya, a 20-year-old from Iraq, is particularly pleased with the project: “Everyone has an idea, that is important. We eat and play and work together, that makes me great fun.”

But there is still much to be done. In the next step, we will cut past video material – matching the lyrics. And we are all very excited about what will come out in the end.
