The project Precarious Art: Protest & Resistance addressed structural and everyday racisms as well as sexisms in Berlin’s cultural sector in the form of an exhibition, film presentations, spoken word and music events, and a two-day symposium. In particular, Black women artists and curators as well as artists and curators of color are in this, with few exceptions, neither decision-makers nor are there a weighty number of self-designed spaces in which they can present themselves or feel represented. Based on the question of possibilities of appropriation, infiltration or the production of alternative contexts, a dialogue emerged about the different strategies how culturally active Black women and women of color can counteract structural racism, everyday racism, sexism and the experiences of non-representation in the white art establishment. At the same time, there was discussion about the extent to which (art) spaces can enable real inclusion and which practices of solidarity are a prerequisite for this.
