„My name is Muhammed Lamin Jadama, I was born and raised in the SeneGambia region. I am a political activist, photographer, social worker and local tour guide in the district Kreuzberg, Berlin. In 2009, I worked in farms in Italy to survive but also to have different experience for some months, then I later moved to Milan where I worked as a journalist for an online newspaper called Afronline for about a year. In October 2011, I decided to move to Berlin for a new adventure. Since 2010, I have always been on the ground, closely tracing the quiet and dramatic moments of refugees’ daily life in Europe. I used my camera for shooting pictures and documenting the situation of refugees and immigrants in many European countries including the 2012-2014 Oranienplatz refugee occupation camp in Berlin. Amongst my work was shown in HKW, Gorki, Unframed Festival and on weekly Radio shows broadcasting on Wearebornfree Empowerment Radio.“
The tabletalk today is all about diverse perspectives on Berlin. While Michael Schmidt and his unique urban landscapes and portraits give us insides into Berlins’ post-war era until the fall of the Berlin wall, Muhammed Lamin Jadama offers us very different views on Berlin. With his work he describes in a striking way a variety of migration stories of people, that came from other places to Berlin, giving insights into the diverse motivations behind and personal experiences. Doing this, he questions stereotype assumptions, assignments and common narratives about migration, refuge and our living together.
Jadama invites us to see new perspectives on Berlin and to rediscover our environment.
