A series curated by Max Czollek  

Das Beste Abendmahl (The Best Supper) 

Director: Moritz Richard Schmidt 

The opening ceremony for the Days of Judeo-Muslim Hegemony took place on October 2, 2020—due to pandemic-related restrictions—in video form. Speeches discussed the appropriation of bourgeois symbols as well as staging the removal of German cultural hegemony through a series of different “guiding cultures” [Leitkulturen]. The Best Supper hosts Max Czollek and Necati Öziri were joined by guests Rebecca Ajnwojner, Fatma Aydemir, Sivan Ben Yishai, Murat Dikenci, Yunus Ersoy, Benjamin Fischer, Marina Frenk, Tim Freudensprung, Tobias Herzberg, Daniel Kahn, Mely Kiyak, Leon Lapsker Kahn, Yeva Lapsker Kahn, Hanni Lorenz, Monica Marotta, Sasha Marianna Salzmann, and Hengameh Yaghoobifarah.

JewsNewsToday – History Special  

Script: Max Czollek and Tobias Herzberg, Director: Moritz Richard Schmidt 

This History Special of the Fake News channel JewsNewsToday was produced in 2020 in association with the Days of Judeo-Muslim Hegemony. The sequence references ongoing German-language discussions of cultural hegemony or “guiding culture” and uncovers historical “evidence” that Berlin was actually always the product of a Judeo-Muslim hegemony.
