Seen and Heard: Berlin, December 2010

With these photos we would like to thank everyone who helped to make this project possible, and wish all of our readers a Happy New Year!


The  project »Stimmen in der Stadt« for World-AIDS-Day 2010 in Berlin has officially ended today, Thursday 9.12.2010, at 00:00 A.M. The interviews will remain available here on our website. The audio stations have been taken down.

We were especially thrilled to see people standing at the audio stations, either alone or in groups, and listening to the interviews, regardless of the extremely cold and snowy weather. The extensive press coverage helped to make the project known far beyond the Berlin city limits. The press coverage also contributed to the great numbers of visitors to our website, who have used the opportunity to listen to the interviews online.

Eva, Anneliese, Michaela, Max, Jan, Paul and Gerd, we thank you for the insights into your private life stories. Your vitality is inspiring. Paul and Gerd, you are remembered.
The future of »Stimmen in der Stadt« is not yet decided. We will take a few weeks to discuss the possibilities, and are open for sugegstions in the meanwhile.

Press coverage

The Stimmen in der Stadt have also become Stimmen on the radio. Also, several different newspapers and magazines reported on the project. We’ve collected a selection of press coverage that you can now read and listen to on our website, under the new category PRESS.

Stimmen in der Stadt at the Berliner Aids Hilfe Film Week

On the ocassion of its 25th anniversary, the Berliner Aids-Hilfe is showing a selection of documentaries and films centered on the theme of HIV and Aids. The films document the force with which Aids hit personal biographies and social structures in the 1980s. These films represent a cultural history in their own right, and one that has been shaped by no other disease as stongly as by HIV in our lifetime.

»PositHIVe Screenings« runs from 1. through 5. Dezember in the cinemas Kant and Hackesche Höfe. Stimmen in der Stadt is represented with the film trailer in the preview program.
