What does it mean to have an East identity imposed on you? An identity that is held responsible for the rapidly growing social divide? To which attributes such as populism, a lack of understanding of democracy, racism, conspiracy myths and poverty are attributed?
Leipzig Germanist Dirk Oschmann shows how, more than thirty years after the fall of the Wall, the West continues to define itself as the norm and the East as a deviation. According to Dirk Oschmann, our media, politics, economy and science are dominated by West German perspectives. Dirk Oschmann pointedly illuminates how this othering harms our society and thus initiates a long overdue debate.
Pankow's district mayor Sören Benn enters into dialogue with Dirk Oschmann and provides further exciting and valuable impulses.
