Gülcin Durmuss

Berlin Braucht Dich!

What Comes to Mind When You Look at Me?

We all make assumptions about each other, based on things like race, ethnicity, gender, and more. In this final unit of chapter one, Gülcin from Berlin Braucht Dich! and Yilmaz from Heroes share the stories of what happened when they asked Germans to say what they thought of them based on looks alone.

Look out for:

  • Crossing borders and frontiers, both literal and symbolic
  • Causes of aggression
  • The ‘Other’
  • Pluralized societies
  • Different identities demand representation and contest privileges
