“We want our children to have a better life”, said the parents when they came to Germany – and watched their children grow up with racism. The video installation features the voices of six people with different backgrounds of migration talking about intergenerational conflicts, political struggles and visions for the future.
What can we do to have a better life? What is better and what is not? We are looking for answers to these questions. In conversations. In stories. In spaces.
Whether it’s Hanau, Halle or everyday racism: racist violence is a continuous phenomenon in Germany. And for many people, a way “out” – towards a fairer world – seems unattainable. Especially now, with the massive shift to the right and multiple global crises, many people feel powerless. So how can we not give up hope? Especially since for those who are affected, such as the bereaved families of the victims of Hanau, the struggle continues anyway.
We should, we must support each other.
And so the supporting program not only focuses on “The Kids are Alright” and the voices and visions associated with it, but also expands them: What spaces and strategies do we need for us to connect?

Das gesamte Programm wird gefördert im Rahmen des Bündnisses internationaler Produktionshäuser von der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien. Das Projekt wurde vom Hessischen Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst gefördert.
