Anti-Racism Festival with a Slice of Humor

Laugh up! Stand up!

Oct 27th to Oct 29th, 2016

Up for the second round of our critical, anti-racism festival with a slice of humor named „Laugh up? Stand up!“

The idea behind the festival is to laugh on together against racist methods and to find out, how we can change the rules of our everyday game. We present to you not only humoristic talents like Jilet Ayse, who is world's most beautiful nightmare of integration, fearless Michel Abdollahi, who won the German Television Prize for his documentary about a village full of Nazis, or even the perfect streamlined Efficiency-Slammer Fitim Litfiu, we also have experts from media and research who are engaged in matters of humour, racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism in the present.
