O-Platz: Selbstermächtigung und Kämpfe der Migration - Eine Ausstellung von International Women* Space im FHXB Museum

Ausstellung | 28. April - 1. Oktober
Eröffnung | 27. April, 18 Uhr

Seit seiner Besetzung 2012-2014 ist der Oranienplatz in Kreuzberg zu einem symbolischen Ort für Solidarität und die politischen Kämpfe von geflüchteten Menschen geworden. Sowohl die Besetzung als auch die Räumung des Kreuzberger Platzes waren nicht nur lokale, sondern auch bundes- und weltweite Ereignisse, die die Debatten über das Migrations- und Grenzregime verändert haben. Zum 10. Jahrestag der Besetzung veranstalteten International Women* Space (IWS) 2022 mit vielen Initiativen und Personen eine fünf-tägige Open-Air-Kunstbaustelle am Oranienplatz.

Mit einer Intervention in der Ausstellung ortsgespräche – ferngespräche – ortsgeschichten des FHXB Museums erinnert International Women* Space an das Großereignis 2022. Parallel dazu rückt eine Fotoinstallation in Offenes Archiv: Ver/sammeln antirassistischer Kämpfe in der 1. Etage des Museums die Besetzung des Oranienplatzes 2012-2014 in den Fokus.

DESPITE ALL: Migration to the Colonial Metropolis of Berlin

21 October 2022 till 30 April 2023

The FHXB Museum and the model project "Dekoloniale Erinnerungskultur in der Stadt" will be showing the collaborative exhibition "DESPITE ALL: Migration to the Colonial Metropolis of Berlin" from 21 October 2022.

The exhibition explores projects, debates and policies of migration to the colonial metropolis of Berlin. It focusses on the complex realities of life and resistance of the people who came to the city in a colonial context - despite racist discrimination and exclusion - and became Berliners.

As an imperial state, the German Empire was already developing into a migration society in the 19th century. Although immigration from colonised regions was not intended, people came to Berlin - especially from the German colonies. For these migrants, there were no consistent regulations on the right of residence or citizenship; however, many saw themselves as citizens of the German Empire. Without German citizenship, they were subject to arbitrary decisions by the authorities and always threatened with expulsion. Nevertheless, some stayed, built a life here and became part of Berlin society. The exhibition explores their stories, realities of life and resistance and highlights that Berlin was a colonial metropolis and migration society before and after Germany's formal colonial rule from 1884 to 1919.

The FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum and the civil society project "Dekoloniale Erinnerungskultur in der Stadt" have researched, debated and designed this exhibition together. Those involved encourage a new look at Berlin, to understand colonialism and migration as inseparable components of our history and present.

Duration: 21.10.22 - 30.04.23
Admission free
The FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum is wheelchair accessible.
The exhibition is in German and English.

Re/Assembling Anti-Racist Struggles
An Open Archive

From May 22nd, 2022
Opening: May 21st, 5 pm

Anti-racist struggles and acts of resistance constitute part of the history of this country. Whether they have immigrated, were born here, or are simply passing through, people who have endured first-hand experiences of racism, anti-Semitism, and other forms of discrimination have been fighting for equality and social change for decades.

Their demands for social inclusion have played a significant role in shaping society, as have countless projects to combat racism and oppression. However, their individual stories and perspectives remain for the most part unseen and unheard. Their knowledge, experiences and voices are often co-opted or are omitted from the mainstream culture of remembrance and official archives.

For some time now, we have been working together with a range of people from East, West and reunified Germany to develop formats in which they can tell their stories of their own struggles against racism and anti-Semitism. We are working together to find and establish new ways of collecting, processing, and presenting this material.

An open archive has been established at the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum showcasing the initial outcomes of this collaborative research. The archive comprises a collection of fragments and found objects which will be further expanded upon through workshops and with the support of visitors to the museum. This open archive is intended to become a site for debate—one that unites past experiences with contemporary debates and struggles against anti-Semitism, racism, and all other forms of discrimination.

This project is a cooperation of Georg-August-University Göttingen, Fachhochschule Kiel, Documentation Centre and Museum of  Migration in Germany e.V. (DOMiD) an FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum.
