´61 – ´91 – ´21: Immer wieder Deutschland

Inventur 3.0

Screenings: Inventur - Metzstraße 11 (1975) und Inventur 2.0 (2021)

In 1975 Yugoslav director Želimir Žilnik created an important work in the migrant culture of remembrance with his film Inventur - Metzstraße 11. The film records Žilnik’s interviews with guest workers from southern Europe, as they report on their lives from a stairwell in Munich. In Inventur 2.0 (2021) Pınar Öğrenci references this work and updates it for today: in a stairwell in Chemnitz, people mainly from the Middle East and Asia tell their stories.

In a conversation following the screenings of both films, Pınar Öğrenci reflects on the changes that took place between the two films and what has happened since.

This event is part of ’61–’91–’21: Immer Wieder Deutschland, the accompanying programme for the exhibition Offener Prozess.
