Description

Are you an EU/EEA national living in the UK? Worried about your rights and options post-Brexit?

Can we take any steps now to safeguard our futures? Join us for an evening of advice about Permanent Residency, Settled Status, Citizenship and how they may apply to you.

6:30PM – Doors, Introduction by Maurizio Rodorigo, INCA UK

Beyond the Battlefields – Fotografien von Käthe Buchler – Ausstellung in Manchester 2. Februar bis 1. März

Join us for the exhibition launch of a unique series of images made by photographer Käthe Buchler (1876-1930) in Germany before, during and after World War One, which are part of the collection of the Museum of Photography in Braunschweig – where Buchler lived and worked.

Buchler’s exquisitely posed portraits and landscapes are the vision of a respectable, bourgeois wife and mother, a pillar of her community with significant technical expertise and a remarkable (and little known) aesthetic vision; she was an early adopter of the ‘Autochrome’ process, the world’s first colour photographic process.

Buchler’s photos during the Great War examine the care of orphaned children and wounded troops. Images of children as an integral part of the war effort provide a remarkable insight into the war’s impact on their everyday lives. Together with a fascinating series entitled ‘Women in Men’s Jobs’, they provide a remarkable window on the preoccupations of ordinary Germans, living and working hundreds of miles away from the fighting.

Exhibition runs 2 February – 1 March 2018

Grosvenor Gallery, Grosvenor Building, Manchester Metropolitan University, Cavendish Street, Manchester, M15 6BR

Roman Ehrlich DAAD Writer-in-Residence in Liverpool 7./8. Februar

The critically acclaimed writer Roman Ehrlich is certainly one of the most unconventional and interesting voices among young contemporary writers in Germany…

Ehrlich started out as a radio- and TV engineer but then joined the renowned German Institute for Literature in Leipzig from which he graduated. His publications include “Das kalte Jahr” (2013), “Urwaldgäste” (2014), „Das Theater des Krieges“ (2017 with Michael Disqué) and “Die fürchterlichen Tage des schrecklichen Grauens” (2017). He has received numerous awards for his work.

His writing deals with the absurdities of everyday life in which his protagonists try to make sense of their surroundings while often experiencing a profound sadness and vague sense of longing. The stories often play on the boundaries of the logical and the odd, fiction and non-fiction, where quaint events and individual biographies are intricately weaved into the narrative. His latest novel is a zeitgeisty take on horror movies and our fears, hopes and true horrors

So viel du brauchst…. Fastenaktion 2018 für Klimaschutz und Klimagerechtigkeit

www.klimafasten.de

  • tut Leib und Seele gut: Spüren und erleben, was ich wirklich brauche, was wichtig ist für ein gutes Leben im Einklang mit der Schöpfung
  • lässt Herz, Hand und Verstand anders und achtsamer mit der Schöpfung und den Mitgeschöpfen umgehen.
  • weitet den Blick, bereitet auf Ostern vor, verändert mich und die Welt
Mit dieser Fastenaktion stellen wir uns in die christliche Tradition, die in der Zeit vor Ostern des Leidens gedenkt und bewusst Verzicht übt, um frei zu werden für neue Gedanken und andere Verhaltensweisen. Der Klimawandel verursacht Leiden, denn er gefährdet das Leben von Menschen, Tieren und Pflanzen. Klimaschutz macht Verzicht erforderlich. Aber immer wieder ist
es ein Gewinn, wenn es gelingt, alleine oder in der Gemeinschaft das Leben klimafreundlicher zu gestalten. ….
