The Carolin Kebekus Show interrupts its comedy routine to offer a “Brennpunkt” report on the issue of racism. 8 minutes and 46 seconds – that’s how long the Afro-American George Floyd struggled against death – presenter Shary Reeves and other prominent BPOC from Germany talk about their experiences with marginalisation, hostility and racism.

Excerpt from the jury’s statement
The Carolin Kebekus Show and its Brennpunkt report on racism is a powerful, spontaneous response to the murder of George Floyd. It owes its impact to a surprising departure from the usual format, an act which itself draws attention to the central theme. The show adopts a consciously confrontational but never showy approach to convey a resounding message of anti-racism.
