For the first time werkgruppe2 publishes a research for listening. In a podcast series we interview experts in Ireland, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, Argentina, Namibia, the USA and Japan. The podcasts are created in collaboration with DEINE KORRESPONDENTIN, a online magazine and network of freelance journalists from all over the world.
How is the right to abortion currently regulated in these ten countries? What does the practical implementation look like, where are the barriers, ambiguities and the need for action? Who are the feminist activists and what are they fighting for? Where is resistance? How does the right to abortion correspond with other social movements?
werkgruppe2 has been developing documentary storytelling projects for over 10 years, often theater productions or film projects. Based on extensive journalistic research, they create atmospheric and narrative formats that explore the boundaries between documentation and fiction. Always asking questions about what documentation means, how reality is depicted and how can people speak and feel on behalf of people?
Most recently they worked on topics as the social decline of women in working-class families, weight discrimination and the hospital murders in Oldenburg and Delmenhorst.
werkgruppe2 are the director Julia Roesler, musician and composer Insa Rudolph, videographer Isabel Robson and dramaturge Silke Merzhäuser.
