We call it Revolution. Transnational Activism in Berlin

Opening | 12 October 2023 | 6pm | FHXB Museum

Duration: 13 October 2023 - 31 March 2024

In many authoritarian-ruled countries, people are standing up for justice, freedom and radical political change - despite the violent repression they have to fear. In recent times, for example, there have been and continue to be protests in Egypt, Chile, Algeria, Sudan, Israel/Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Iran since 2011, which have brought millions of people onto the streets.

Berlin has not remained untouched by these events; the revolutionary movements are also supported from here. Especially people who fled to Berlin as a result of the repressive reactions, but also people from previous movements and their descendants shape the life of the city with their transnational activism. In public space, this can be seen in graffiti with symbols and slogans of the various revolutionary movements, in solidarity demonstrations and actions, artistic projects and research work, among other things.

What are people in Berlin who work in transnational networks for revolutionary movements fighting for? What are they demanding? What role do activists in the diaspora play for revolutionary movements? Which struggles can they connect to? And how are revolutionary events documented?

The exhibition "We Call It Revolution. Transnational Activism in Berlin" explores these questions. With documentary material, video interviews, publications and artistic works by people from political movements, the exhibition addresses aspects of transnational revolutionary movements in Berlin. The exhibition is based on conversations and workshops with activists.
