Identity in Germany @ NYU Berlin

by | Dec 9, 2021 | Exhibitions, Events & Publications

18.04.2019 at New York University, Berlin

A discussion/conversation under the theme of unwrapping German identity at NY University, Berlin.

Three speakers are invited to talk about their own experience and expertise on different aspects on German identity.

 

Topics likely to be discussed are:

  • Who are you and what are your interests/background in relation to identity in Germany?
  • What is Transnational Queer Underground? What are its central/core values?
  • How has LGBTQ+ identity evolved in Germany over the years? What is the current status of the community in respect to societal perception?
  • Berlin is often seen as a progressive haven for the LGBTQ community. Is this truly the case, and if so, how is the situation different in the rest of Germany?
  • How has the current rise in right-wing rhetoric and protectionism impacted the state of the LGBTQ community in Germany? Are they in a more vulnerable position today than before?
  • How is gender and gender fluidity perceived here? Do things such as German language having only 2 gender articles (er/sie) impact gender identity and expression? To what extent?
  • What does the intersection between sexuality and race in Germany look like? How do migrants and people of colour struggle with different notions of gender identity, and how, if at all, has the recent rise in migration to Germany impacted the gender movements?
  • How does art combine with the gender identity scene? What has been the role and impact of the art scene in better cultivating a base for gender identity?

About NYU Berlin

About New York University, Berlin

At NYU Berlin students experience a cosmopolitan city that holds a complex and crucial place in modern European history. Youthful, artistic, and hip, Berlin has traveled a path that led from the defining cultural avant-garde of the Weimar Republic to the devastation of World War II, from a divided city symbolizing the Cold War to today’s reunified and renewed capital.

The program at NYU Berlin is designed for students in the social sciences and humanities who want to earn credit in their majors—including sociology, history, politics, studio art, environmental studies and European studies—while having a transformative experience abroad. Courses are taught in English, and German language courses are offered at all levels. Day trips and guided excursions in and around Berlin are included in the program.

„I had a virtual meeting with Verena, and I felt really safe and comfortable opening up about my struggles with Verena.
She is such a good listener and she shared with me a list of practical and efficient tools/solutions to change my mindset and the way I talk to myself. It was eye-opening. I totally recommend talking to her - her expertise can be a precious resource for everyone!“ - Francesco

I am at a stage in my life where I can (and want to) make a shift, but struggle envisioning the right direction to take and the action needed. Verena helped me to focus on my desires and what is keeping me stuck. Her approach is sympathetic, calm and down-to earth. It felt like she truly wanted to work with me towards my goals and my wellbeing, through small, concrete steps and kindness. She made me feel more confident, and now the change seems more approachable. – Elena

Verena holds compassion for herself and for me, listens and allows space and treats me as an equal.
She shows up with curiosity & presence, reminds me to listen to what's important to me, suggests simple, manageable practices, giving me concrete things to work with, all in one 60-minute call. Thank you again for this gift! – em

I always admired Verena's ability to bring together people of very diverse backgrounds and give others the space and the freedom to be who they are and to express themselves. It was amazing to watch her transform her life and herself and become much happier in the process. – Corinna

I’m so thankful for the email you sent yesterday about being a conscious digital citizen. 🙂 It really sparked my day and I must have agreed with every word you said […] maybe even more as I am opening up to start presenting my thoughts and work online to wider audiences, it is so important to be concise about adequate behaviour in the digital world and lead by example 😉 Thank you for reminding me of that! 🙂 😉 – Luisa

The three Elements of well-being:

Physical Well-being // Body

To fulfil our physiological needs, we need enough sleep, good food and enough exercise.

We also need a safe place to live and be.

I always think of Virginia Woolf's quote: “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”

Mental Well-being // Mind

Our mental well-being is usually linked to our physical well-being and vice versa.

Once we know how to take care of ourselves in terms of food, sleep and exercise, we can learn to develop a strong and positive relationship with ourselves mentally as well.

We can start to change and train the way we think of ourselves, ...

Relational Well-being // Soul

The work always starts with ourselves, but ends with being able to be fully present in community.

But once our inner work is (mostly) done, we can safely, lovingly and joyfully be with others and inspire and uplift.

We can learn to live in the freedom ...
