Public Walk & Talk
1:30 pm Moderated walk to the sculpture series around Schlesisches Tor / Kreuzberg
2:30 pm Round-Table at alpha nova & galerie futura
With Prof. Azade Köker (Artist) and Robert Schmidt-Matt (Sculptor)
Moderator: Martina Kofer (Literary Scholar)
Location and meeting point for the walk: alpha nova & galerie futura
A walk with the artist Prof. Azade Köker to the projects Menschenlandschaft and Cuvrybrunnen, created in the 1980s, is intended to commemorate the artistic and local history of the group of sculptures. At Schlesisches Tor, eight artists enlivened the then barren terrain. Both projects contain stories of the political, artistic, and intercultural coexistence that was specific to Kreuzberg, yet today are largely forgotten. A moderated conversation follows with Azade Köker and Robert Schmidt-Matt – significant participants in the Kreuzberg art scene.
The event is part of the series Revolt She Said – decolonial and feminists perspectives on 68, curated by Andrea Caroline Keppler (District Berlin), Dr. Katharina Koch and Dorothea Nold (alpha nova & galerie futura) in conversation with Karina Griffith (District Atelierstipendiatin 2018 und Recherchestipendiatin Decolonizing 68) and Sharon Adler, Prof. Liz Bachhuber, Madeleine Bernstorff, Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro, Dr. Lisa Glauer, Dr. Natasha A.
