Greetings
from the Commissioner for Integration of the district Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Berlin
to the XXV. Black International Cinema Berlin 2010

Migration has always – nowadays and in the past – created a multicultural reality.
To acknowledge this fact and to anchor it in the center of society, remains a significant task for the coming years.

Despite the current efforts in the debate regarding integration politics, to acknowledge “diversity” being an “enrichment”, old ideas are still prevalent that there exists a “homo­genous majority” in the center of society, to which “foreign minorities” are challenged to assimilate.

In contrast to this I would like to point out: the city’s society of Berlin is heterogeneous, people from different ways of life live here, together in active and dynamic connections. On the way to an urban society acknowledgement of a changed societal complexion, is a first step.

Not only portraying this diversity, but furthermore to actively realize it requires an open dialogue on a level playing field, equal opportunities and the right to participate.

Art and culture can build bridges, cross borders and pull away from stereotypical categorized thinking. Therefore, initiatives such as Black International Cinema Berlin are important for the capital of Germany.

In 2010, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Black International Cinema Berlin.
I extend my congratulations to the organizers of Black International Cinema Berlin,
a cultural highlight which is unique Germany-wide.

I wish the events many guests and for all of us, new inspiration.

Gabriele Gün Tank
Commissioner for Integration of the district Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Berlin/Germany


Grußwort
der Integrationsbeauftragten des Bezirks Tempelhof-Schönberg, Berlin
zum XXV. Black International Cinema Berlin 2010

Migration hat schon immer - heute und gestern - vielkulturelle Realität geschaffen. Diese anzuerkennen und im Zentrum der Gesellschaft zu verankern, bleibt auch in den kommenden Jahren eine wichtige Aufgabe.

Trotz aktueller Bemühungen in der integrationspolitischen Debatte, „Vielfalt“ als „Bereicherung“ anzuerkennen, herrschen immer noch alte Vorstellungen vor: Es gebe eine „homogene Mehrheit“ im Zentrum der Gesellschaft, an die sich die „fremden Minderheiten“ anzupassen haben.

Demgegenüber möchte ich betonen: Berlins Stadtgesellschaft ist heterogen, Menschen in verschiedenen Lebenslagen leben hier, miteinander in aktiven und dynamischen Beziehungen. Auf dem Weg in eine urbane Gesellschaft ist die Anerkennung des gewandelten gesellschaftlichen Erscheinungsbildes ein erster Schritt.

Diese Diversität nicht einfach nur abzubilden, sondern sie darüber hinaus aktiv umzusetzen, erfordert einen offenen Dialog auf Augenhöhe, braucht Chancengleichheit und das Recht auf Teilhabe.

Kunst und Kultur kann hier Brücken bauen, Grenzen überschreiten und sich stereotypischem Schubladendenken entziehen. Deshalb sind Initiativen wie Black International Cinema Berlin wichtig für die Hauptstadt.

Im Jahre 2010 begehen wir das 25jährige Jubiläum von Black International Cinema Berlin.
Mein Dank geht an die Organisatorinnen und Organisatoren von Black International Cinema Berlin, ein kulturelles Highlight, welches deutschlandweit einmalig ist.

Ich wünsche den Veranstaltungen zahlreiche Besucher und uns allen, neue Anregungen.

Gabriele Gün Tank
Integrationsbeauftragte des Bezirks Tempelhof-Schönberg, Berlin/Germany
