2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of 1968. alpha nova & galerie futura and District Berlin have taken this as an occasion to deal with the student and protest movements of the 1960s, both in Germany and internationally, from feminist and decolonial perspectives that also have completely redefined the field of art in particular. What principally moved us is the question of which histories, actors, and voices have until this point remained invisible in the dominant narratives about 1968 and how marginalized and spilled knowledge production from that time can be re-actualized for the contemplation and creation of current and future socio-political processes and demands. In this sense, with the event series we wanted to question the production of history and historiography and to (re)narrate the movements of this time from the perspective of its feminist, anti-colonial, diasporic, migrant, Jewish, and Black organizations. The publication offer a deeper glimpse in the event-specific themes, discussions, and reflections on 68 and their relevance for the present and the future.
