From Monday, August 7 to Thursday, August 31, 2023, the courtyard of the Stasi Headquarters. Campus for Democracy will once again become an open-air venue: The Campus Cinema will present films on history for four weeks. It is about the GDR past, the state security, adaptation and resistance, archives and enlightenment.

All films were produced after 1989 and focus on repression, revolution or coming to terms with the past.

They awaken memories or provide space for the questions of young people. At the historical location, in front of the scene of Stasi Minister Mielke's former official residence, it is possible to engage in a conversation about the topicality of the past.

The evening screenings start with short films or material from the Stasi archives. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to talk with filmmakers, experts and contemporary witnesses. There is also a varied supporting program with exhibitions, guided tours on the topic of the evening and a film and workshop program for children (on Saturdays).

Admission is free. Registration is not required.
