Friends of Freiburg will be hosting a mini conference for the Tag der Deutschen Einheit. Entitled “The Fall of the Berlin Wall: 30 Years of Reflection on aspects of life in East Germany and the changes wrought by the Mauerfall,” the seminar will examine the East German art, film, and dissident scene. The panelists will consider how elements of all three continue to impact German culture thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The event will take place from 6-8pm on Thursday, September 26, at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Panelists will include Dr. John Torpey, Director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies, Dr. Barton Byg, Founding Director of the DEFA Film Library, and Cornelia Thomsen, a New York-based artist born in East Germany. It will be moderated by Friends of Freiburg’s own Sarah Stephens.
