A post-migrant hip-hop narrative

Hannes Loh and Murat Güngör have pieced together a story. This has become a long remix of rap, migration and empowerment, in which the ambivalent echo of four decades of Almanya reverberate. What does the music of the so-called guest workers of the 1960s and 1970s and the exiles of the 1980s have to do with current German gangsta rap? What is the connection between the political and cultural empowerment of the first generation, the struggles for citizenship rights in the 1990s and the dazzling pop culture of the present?
In our reading, they remix images, texts, songs and films from 40 years of Almanya with personal experiences and social debates. They go through the forgotten years of hip hop old school, shed light on the influence of reunification on the birth of German rap and question the sound of gangsta rap – and ask about class, race and gender in this story of empowerment.

In their Lecture Remix Almanya, Murat Güngör, ex-rapper and co-founder of the anti-racist network “Kanak Attak”, and Hannes Loh, former rapper in the group “Anarchist Academy”, review the beginnings of German hip-hop from the post-migrant scene – including tracks by Metin Türköz, Advanced Chemistry, Eko Fresh, Azad, Arrest Warrant, Ebow and SXTN.
