In Protected content , issues surrounding internship culture have intensified worldwide, with multiple scandals in America and the UK, growing media coverage and increasing public awareness. From a successful lawsuit against Fox from the unpaid interns of the film 'Black Swan', to the shocking story of a 21-year German intern’s death after 72 hours of non-stop work, many who’ve been exposed to this culture are beginning to agree with the saying that the internship has become a new form of slavery.
With the growth, and arguably exploitation, of internship culture in Berlin, Supermarkt presents a timely Masterclass examining the problem of unfair internships, and encouraging increased awareness of legal rights for interns, led by expert in the field Katja Petrova (founder and manager of Berlin Internship Justice), with a guest presentation from Nicholas Wenzel (founder and manager of InternsGoPro).
Everyone is invited to attend and participate in this Masterclass, especially activists and those who have come across this problem and/or experienced Berlin’s internship culture first-hand.
