"The Fall of the Berlin Wall: 30 Years of Reflection on aspects of life in East Germany and the changes wrought by the Mauerfall" is a seminar presented by the University of Freiburg and Friends of Freiburg University, and hosted by the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center.
The seminar will examine the East German art, film, and dissident scene, and consider how elements of all three continue to impact German culture thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Speakers will included Dr. Barton Byg, founder of the DEFA Film Library, Cornelia Thomsen, an artist who grew up in East Germany, and Dr. John Torpey, Director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies. Sarah Stephens, an alumna of the University of Freiburg, will moderate. A reception will accompany the event."
