The fourth and final working group in the MoCom project began its research in March 2023. All five participants are Master’s students in Public History at Freie Universität Berlin: Anja Hartmann, Constanze Wiedemann, Junseok Won, Luis Kumpfmueller, and Malou Bokowski.
They were collecting memories and stories on the topic of Arriving somewhere new. After the group has decided on a story and written the manuscript, artist Marc Müller began withe the illustrations and the motion design.
When a person crosses a border, they often leave everything behind – and find themselves in an unfamiliar place, in a different culture, and surrounded by new people. Also with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification, many people had to arrive in a new world. How does one deal with the unknown and the uncertain? How do you build a new home?
The premiere of the fourth and last motion comic in the MoCom project will take place in Helmstedts Pferdestall on December 3, 2023 at 11 AM.
