The courage to invent the future – Reading with Sheri Hagen from the publication „50 years of African In-Dependencies“, Sunday, 29 June 2014, 16-18h, Pêle-Mêle

In the framework of the festival "48 Stunden Neukölln", AfricAvenir and Pêle Mêle present a reading (in German) by actress Sheri Hagen from the publication “50 years of African In-Dependencies”. Intellectuals, political activists and artists from Africa and the African diaspora contributed to this diverse and thought-provoking anthology which makes the current debates about independence and decolonization accessible for a German-speaking readership. Scholarly articles or historic speeches, poems or song lyrics, the volume offers a manifold and critical access to political, economic and cultural aspects. It does so from an exclusively African perspective which focuses on the entire continent, from South Africa to Algeria, from Senegal to Kenya.

It is this very mixture of different genres combined in the publication which mirrors the educational work of AfricAvenir – it is intended for a broad and diverse audience coming from different social and professional backgrounds and different age groups.

The volume was produced with the collaboration of young graphic designers of Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle.

Sheri Hagen was born in Lagos, Nigeria, grew up in Hamburg and studied and graduated from the Stage School of Dance and Drama in Hamburg as well as from the Studio Theater in Vienna. Besides numerous work in film and television ("The Lives of Others", "Baal", "Tatort", "Sperling"), she has performed in diverse theater productions in Berlin, Bremen, and Munich. In 2007, Sheri Hagen realized her own production - "Stella and the Stork", a children's film that ran as a success in many film festivals. In 2012 she directed her debut feature film "At Second Glance".
