In film seminars, panel discussions, mulitplier events and an exhibition the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung/bpb (Federal Agency for Civic Education) presents its educational work in relation to the thematic framework of „culture and mediation“. Since its foundation in 1952 bpb situates itself at the interface of state, politics, educational establishment, sience, media and civil society. The events staged at the Kunstverein deliver insight into the educational policy of bpb which thrives to advance a democatic conscience. The presentation circles around the film compendium Parallelwelt Film (parallel world film) which gives insight into the DEFA (German Film Corporation) and was published by bpb. The twelve films, presented on monitors during the course of the exhibition, visualize the four main occupational fields of the Federal Agency for Civic Education: publications, events, online presence and support of educational institutions.
