To Be – Named: Curatorial Tour and WorkshopSaturday, September 23, 2023 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm CEST/GMT+2
Haus Kunst Mitte (Heidestraße 54, 10557 Berlin)
The art exhibition "To Be - Named" at Haus Kunst Mitte, curated by BCB’s long-time collaborator Dr. Dorothea Schöne and created in cooperation with the Experimental Humanities Collaborative Network (EHCN), is dedicated to the topic of naming and the significance of names for the development or suppression of a person's identity. The paintings, installations, films, and photographs selected for the show engage with the traces of colonial history and colonial injustice that have manifested themselves over decades through naming, image appropriation and one-sided forms of historiography.
After the tour led by Dr. Schöne, Dr. Künnei Takaahai, a cultural anthropologist from the University of Warsaw, will lead a unique workshop on the politics of naming. Dr. Takaahai’s research focuses on the societies and cultures of Siberia, Central Asia, and the Arctic as well as the identities of Indigenous peoples and multiculturalism in Siberia and the United States in the context of modern neo-colonialism, post-colonialism, and decolonial studies.
The number of participants is limited, so please sign up for the tour and workshop at your earliest convenience via this Google Form.
