Unsichtbar gemachte Geschichten kollektiv sichtbar machen: Ein Anti-Denkmal Workshop für Eltern und Kinder
By Daniela Medina Poch and Pablo Santacana López
With Vitjitua Ndjiharine and Jorinde Splettstößer
29 – 30 October 22 | at the FHXB Museum
How do we remember things?
How does the city remember its history?
What stories do children want to make visible?
What kind of monuments do they want to claim for their concerns?
These questions were the focus of the two-day workshop (October 29-30, 2022 at FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum) with artist:s Daniela Medina Poch and Pablo Santacana López. Children and adults explored in an accessible and dynamic way different ways in which people or a society remember.
This project is part of a series of artistic activations of the online platform “Kolonialismus Begegnen,” an archive initiated by the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum that gathers traces and voices on the postcolonial history of Berlin’s districts. It shows that colonialism is neither a historical event nor an exclusively academic or political concept, but rather a power structure that influences our present – a structure that we can change together.
