We can hardly believe it! With the Pop-up Institute we have just experienced not only a great kick-off meeting, our first project is now also being documented on film by Nina Wesemann. This is made possible by the Volkswagen Foundation, which in addition to funding our Pop-up Institute is also supporting the creation and distribution of the film.

the film “faces”

As a timeless instrument of science communication and documentation, director Nina Wesemann is making a 30-minute documentary film about the anti-stigma work of the Pop-up Institute. The film is intended to provide an insight into the clinical picture of schizophrenia, especially for people not familiar with the subject, and to help reduce stigmas. In addition, the film is intended to contribute to the dialogue between the arts and science by capturing the development process and the final results of the Pop-Up Institute’s first project for a larger audience to experience.
