The cultural sector in Western European countries likes to think of itself as open, progressive and international. But discrimination is part of everyday life here as well, neither stopping at the barriers blocking off a film set nor at the doors of the rehearsal spaces of prestigious theatres. Diversity officers are often no more than fig leaves. What does this mean for cultural workers of colour? What alternative approaches are they developing? And how can cultural spaces and institutions be transformed so that they more accurately reflect the heterogeneity of society?

The contributions to “Fiktionsbescheinigung. 16 Cinematic Perspectives on Germany” function as suggestions for how to counter the white German gaze with diverse, intersectional perspectives. All of the films have one thing in common: their own visual and textual practice of testimony from within, not from the margins. The curators explain their motivations and ask how aesthetic and social strategies can engage with each other.
