Exhibition description
 
The exhibition documents the history of
Fountainhead® Tanz
Theatre
&
James V. Burks
African
Marketplace & Cultural Faire
City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural
Affairs, USA
 
in association with
International Artists
 
The Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre was founded by Prof. Donald Muldrow
Griffith, Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith, Lynnda Curry, Ricky Powell and Detlef
Bäcker, four American artists and a German colleague, who met in Berlin during
1979 at Theater des Westens and decided to undertake intercultural,
interdisciplinary and international productions in dance, theatre, television,
workshops, film/video festivals and publications.
This exhibition paints a
picture of the activities of various people during their historical
contributions to Berlin, elsewhere and hence, the portrait seeks to prevent
these undertakings from becoming "Footprints in the Sand?".

"FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND?"
 
The lessons of history arrive in the form of personal experiences, books,
media presentations, paintings, architecture and so on.
How these materials are interpreted and perhaps, through the ages,
re-interpreted assuming the information is included, varies according to the
group or the individual perspective, interests, socio-economic influences and
opportunities.
 
As we pass through the formal educational process, we are informed of
histories; others and ours.
It generally requires an enlightened mentor or
parent to point out what is overlooked in the presentation of history, so
earnestly injected into our academic and formative education.
Many years ago, as this awareness of history´s exceptions were realized, a
mentor named Oscar Brown Jr. pointed out the necessity for assuming
responsibility and making sacrifices necessary to enlighten shadows and fill
empty historical spaces.
 
So, the development of information, awareness, heightened sensibility and
maturation leads to inevitable conclusions.
The XXV. Black International Cinema Berlin 2010, from inception, remains an
initiative and institution for the documentation and preservation of
individuals/groups existence and contributions to the societies in which they
and we reside.
 
We are participants in the process of embedding in memories and stone, what
previously might have been, "Footprints In The Sand?".

"FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND?"
 
Die Lehren der Geschichte offenbaren sich in Form von persönlichen
Erfahrungen, in Büchern, durch Darstellungen in den Medien, in der Malerei,
Architektur und so fort.
 
Wie dieses Material interpretiert und vielleicht im Laufe der Zeit neu
interpretiert wird in der Annahme, entsprechende Informationen sind vorhanden,
variiert abhängig von der Perspektive, Interessen, der sozioökonomischen
Einflüsse und Möglichkeiten der Gruppe und des Einzelnen.
 
Während wir die allgemeine Schulbildung durchlaufen, werden wir über
Geschichte informiert, über die Anderer und über unsere eigene.
 
Es erfordert im allgemeinen einen aufgeklärten Mentor oder Eltern, die
einen auf das aufmerksam machen, was in der Geschichtsschreibung übersehen
wurde, die auf so gewissenhafte Weise in unsere akademische und prägende Bildung
eingeflossen ist.
 
Vor vielen Jahren, als uns bewusst wurde, dass es Lücken in der Geschichte
gibt, machte ein Mentor namens Oscar Brown Jr. auf die Notwendigkeit aufmerksam,
Verantwortung zu übernehmen und die erforderlichen Opfer zu erbringen, um Licht
auf die Schatten zu werfen und die leeren Stellen der Geschichtsdarstellung zu
füllen.
 
Somit führt die Entwicklung von Information, Bewusstsein, gesteigerter
Wahrnehmung und Reife zu unvermeidlichen Schlussfolgerungen.
 
Das XXV. Black International Cinema Berlin 2010 bleibt seit seiner
Entstehung eine Initiative und Institution für die Dokumentation über die
Existenz von Einzelnen und Gruppen und die Bewahrung ihrer Beiträge zu den
Gesellschaften, in denen sie und wir leben.
 
Wir sind TeilnehmerInnen im Prozess, das in Erinnerung zu halten und zu
festigen, was vormals "Footprints In The Sand?" gewesen sein mag.

The festival screens cinema from the African Diaspora and other films from varied intercultural backgrounds or perspectives.

Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which was produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.
