"Walls Resist! Sudan: Writing on Collapsing Walls" an event by Sudan Uprising Germany

7th March | 7 pm - 8.30 pm | Roof top of the FHXB museum

The history of writing of political messages on the walls - such as political slogans, tags and graffiti - and using of public spaces to demonstrate is not new in Sudan, but it has taken a radical shape during the recent chain of events: the uprising against the dictatorship of Bashir of December 2018, the following transitional period, the military coup of 25th October 2021 and the following war/military conflict and the ongoing civil resistance/revolution.

Since the military junta controls the public media and the internet, while a significant portion of the Sudanese people do not use social media, writing on walls remains a crucial means of self-expression and communication. The walls serve as a bulletin board of the key events of the uprising, a manifestation of people's shared hopes, goals and vision, and, most notably, a memorial for the Martyrs.

 These writings and artwork are the records of the revolution's events and essential pieces of its history, however they are constantly being erased from public buildings and streets by security and intelligence forces, the owners of homes and shops, the elements of weather (the materials used are of poor quality so the writings and artwork do not last long) as much as the by the ongoing military conflict.

The writings and artwork disappear undocumented, overlooked by both Sudanese and international media. The aim of the project is to preserve this crucial component of Sudan's revolution as much as the revolution itself.


Event and visual presentation from SudanUprising Germany. It will be held in English. 

The event is part of the exhibition "We call it revolution. Transnational activism in Berlin".  Free entry. 

1973/2023 - From the "recruitment stop" to the migration society

21st March | Entrance from 4:30 pm | SO36

On November 23, 1973, the West German government imposed the so-called "recruitment stop". This not only put an end to the recruitment of workers since 1955, but also made a migration policy statement that is still valid today: migration should be and remain the exception. The "recruitment stop" continues to shape discussions, policies and legislation on immigration and belonging to this day. However, the "recruitment stop" did not put an end to immigration to Germany, but accelerated the emergence of our current migration society.

Inauguration of commemorative plaques on labour migration in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg

26th march

The history of labour migrants, often referred to as "contract workers" and "guest workers", is conveyed by two new commemorative plaques in the district.
At the sites of a former AEG Telefunken residential home in Kreuzberg (formerly West Berlin) and the Volkseigener Betrieb Berliner Vergaser- und Filterwerke in Frankfurter Allee in Friedrichshain (formerly East Berlin), it is shown that migrants have shaped the history and developments of the district and the history of democratisation and continue to do so today. The memorial plaques will be realised as part of the district's diversity commemoration.

On 26 March 2024, the district mayor and other speakers will inaugurate the memorial plaques:

- 3 pm, Frankfurter Allee 71B-75, (next to the Plaza Frankfurter Allee entrance)

- 5 pm, Stresemannstr. 30
