AFGHANISTAN – Thoughts from Exile

Reading and discussion
The eyes of the world are on Afghanistan, and so are those of many exiled Afghans in Germany. Author Massum Faryar reports on how he processes his experiences and the history of his homeland, Afghanistan, in his art. By reading from his novel "Buskaschi oder Der Teppich meiner Mutter" (Buskaschi or My Mother's Carpet), he invites the audience to immerse themselves in the history of the country. Following the reading, he and the designer and women's rights activist Laila Noor will talk with journalist Nadine Kreuzahler about the current situation in Afghanistan.

COME TOGETHER – Exile, Museum, Music

From 1 p.m.
One day packed with events – from guided tours to children’s quizzes and more:

2:30 p.m.: Gathering stories from exile
Discussion
Cornelia Vossen, curator of the Exilmuseum, and Anne von Oswald, project manager of the We Refugees Archive, talk about their concepts for presenting stories of exile in physical and digital spaces.

Discussion with Q&A

 Moderation: Meike-Marie Thiele (Exilmuseum Berlin)
 
6. p.m.: Exile Then Exile Now
Panel discussion
How do experiences in exile today compare with those in the 1930s? To what extent does exile today change the way we think about history – and how does history change the way we think about exile?
A discussion between Doerte Bischoff (University Hamburg), Wolfgang Benz (historian), Adnan Softić (author and director), Sven Tetzlaff (Körber Foundation) and Cornelia Vossen (Exilmuseum Berlin).

From 8 p.m.: Live music by ILLAY
You can recognise ILLAY as a glowing mane of curls holding an electric bass, a cello with loop machine or a megaphone. The songs that she writes, on the other hand, are much darker but wrapped in a warm, rich texture of strings, guitars and a drop of electronica. ILLAY sings in Hebrew, English and French in the genre of oriental-indie-pop.
