mariem hassen. the unyielding voice (of the western sahara)
Saturday, November 20 | 4 p.m. | Flandernbunker
with ZAZIE SCHUBERT-WURR
and MANUEL DOMINGUEZ SANZ
The conflict in the Western Sahara, which has now lasted for almost forty years, is largely unnoticed by the global public. The country was briefly highlighted during the Geneva talks in March 2019 when special envoy of the UN Secretary-General, the former Federal President Horst Köhler has resumed the discussions between the Sahrawi, Morocco and Spain about the future of the Sahrawi state. However, a solution to the conflict is still not in sight. All the more important are publications that repeatedly remind of the occupation of Western Sahara and the difficult life of Sahrawi in refugee camps.
Manuel Dominquez and Zazie Schubert-Wurr tell the story of their encounters with the musician Mariem Mariem Hassan with care and commitment. The story begins in 1997 and ends in 2015, when Mariem Hassen dies of bone cancer. The focus is on the lyricist, musician and singer, on her songs and her Sahrawi roots.
In cooperation with the association Mahnmal Kilian e.V.
