Out of sight – out of mind? A virtual tour of the formerly occupied Gerhart Hauptmann School in Kreuzberg

The former Gerhart-Hauptmann-Schule (GHS) in Kreuzberg was occupied by refugees protesting against the government's restrictive asylum policy from 2012 to 2018. The protest attracted nationwide attention. In January 2018, the school was evicted. The building has been empty ever since. Nevertheless there is still evidence of the squatters, such as wall paintings and other traces that are still visible in the building: traces of fire, broken locks and the furnishings of the washrooms. In order to preserve the history of occupation, the formerly occupied areas of the building were documented using laser scanning and photogrammetry.

Wednesday, May 4 at 6 pm on zoom / 3D platform Mozilla Hubs

A virtual tour with Denise Garcia Bergt, Jennifer Kamau, Pablo Dornhege and Natalie Maier

DESPITE ALL: Migration to the colonial metropolis Berlin

21 October 2022 till 30 April 2023

The FHXB Museum and the model project "Dekoloniale Erinnerungskultur in der Stadt" will be showing the collaborative exhibition "DESPITE ALL: Migration to the Colonial Metropolis of Berlin" from 21 October 2022.

The exhibition explores projects, debates and policies of migration to the colonial metropolis of Berlin. It focusses on the complex realities of life and resistance of the people who came to the city in a colonial context - despite racist discrimination and exclusion - and became Berliners.

As an imperial state, the German Empire was already developing into a migration society in the 19th century. Although immigration from colonised regions was not intended, people came to Berlin - especially from the German colonies. For these migrants, there were no consistent regulations on the right of residence or citizenship; however, many saw themselves as citizens of the German Empire. Without German citizenship, they were subject to arbitrary decisions by the authorities and always threatened with expulsion. Nevertheless, some stayed, built a life here and became part of Berlin society. The exhibition explores their stories, realities of life and resistance and highlights that Berlin was a colonial metropolis and migration society before and after Germany's formal colonial rule from 1884 to 1919.

The FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum and the civil society project "Dekoloniale Erinnerungskultur in der Stadt" have researched, debated and designed this exhibition together. Those involved encourage a new look at Berlin, to understand colonialism and migration as inseparable components of our history and present.


Duration: 21.10.22 - 30.04.23
Admission free
The FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum is wheelchair accessible.
The exhibition is in German and English.

O-Platz wird 10! Baustelle Migration

Ab dem 5. Oktober 22 | anlässlich der Aktionswoche von IW*S | Mit Videodokumentationen im offenen Archiv antirassistischer Kämpfe am FHXB Museum

Vor 10 Jahren wurde der Oranienplatz und die Gerhart-Hauptmann-Schule von einer Geflüchteten-Bewegung besetzt. Wir vom International Women* Space, eine feministische, antirassistische und antikoloniale Grassroots-Bewegung, die sich zum Ziel gesetzt hat, die Migrant*innen- und Geflüchtetenbewegung durch Selbstorganisation und Selbstbestimmung zu stärken, organisieren derzeit die Veranstaltung "O-platz wird 10! Baustelle Migration", einer fünftägigen Open-Air-Kunstbaustelle, die die Geschichte der Geflüchtetenbewegung in den Fokus stellt.

International Women* Space e.V. und das FHXB Museum präsentieren ab dem 5.10.22 eine Reihe von Videodokumentationen über die Geflüchtetenbewegung im offenen Archiv antirassistischer Kämpfe.
Die Videoserie von Denise Garcia Bergt (International Women*space) zeigt verschiedene Perspektiven: die Geflüchtetenbewegung seit 2012 rund um die O-Platz Besetzung, die feministische Perspektive darauf, die Interviewserie "Kämpfer*innen", in der ein Dutzend Frauen* über Migration, Kolonialismus, die Berliner Mauer, das wiedervereinigte Deutschland und vieles mehr reflektieren.

Neuveröffentlichung: Die postkoloniale Stadt lesen. Historische Erkundungen in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg

Natalie Bayer / Mark Terkessidis (Hg.)

Obwohl das Thema Kolonialismus in letzter Zeit viel diskutiert wird, gibt es viele Wissenslücken über die koloniale Vergangenheit und post­koloniale Gegenwart. Das zeigt sich besonders auf der lokalen Ebene der Stadt: Wie hat sich der Imperialismus des Deutschen Reiches mit seinem Ausgreifen nach Übersee, aber auch nach Ost- oder Südosteuropa im städtischen Leben niedergeschlagen? Was ist davon geblieben?

„Die postkoloniale Stadt lesen“ befasst sich exemplarisch mit dem Berliner Bezirk Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg – anhand von Bauten, Verkehrsknotenpunkten, Organisationen, Firmen, Kultureinrichtungen und konkreten Personen, die mit dem imperialen Projekt in Verbindung standen, aber auch widerständig waren. Im einleitenden Essay erläutern Natalie Bayer und Mark Terkessidis die theoretischen Ausgangspunkte und die Herangehensweise für eine Stadtforschung, die den Kolonialismus nicht als historischen Sonderfall behandelt, sondern als dynamisches Moment in der Entwicklung von Städten verortet.

Re/Assembling Anti-Racist Struggles An Open Archive

From May 22nd, 2022 Opening: May 21st, 5 pm

Anti-racist struggles and acts of resistance constitute part of the history of this country. Whether they have immigrated, were born here, or are simply passing through, people who have endured first-hand experiences of racism, anti-Semitism, and other forms of discrimination have been fighting for equality and social change for decades. For some time now, we have been working together with a range of people from East, West and reunified Germany to develop formats in which they can tell their stories of their own struggles against racism and anti-Semitism. We are working together to find and establish new ways of collecting, processing, and presenting this material.

An open archive has been established at the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum showcasing the initial outcomes of this collaborative research. The archive comprises a collection of fragments and found objects which will be further expanded upon through workshops and with the support of visitors to the museum. This open archive is intended to become a site for debate—one that unites past experiences with contemporary debates and struggles against anti-Semitism, racism, and all other forms of discrimination.

ASSEMBLY "Bringing Together Anti-Racist Struggle"
May 19-21, 2022 at the Hebbel am Ufer (HAU) in Berlin

Fights and resistance against racism and anti-Semitism are part of the history of this country. For three days we want to take a close look at this under the motto "Collect, archive and activate anti-racist struggles": We look at movement, location and time in an assembly in workshop, exhibition and discussion formats together with activists and researchers , contemporary witnesses and artists of different generations the history of anti-racist struggles in East, West and the reunified Germany. It's not just about looking back, digging up and recording forgotten experiences that have been made invisible, but also about reactivating them for today and tomorrow.

In the workshops, the genealogies of feminist anti-racist struggles, the struggles in the former GDR against the specific forms and practices of racism there, resistance against anti-Semitism (and Holocaust denial), the refugee struggles, the struggles of Rom:nja and Sinti: ze, the fight against racial profiling, political anti-racist archiving initiatives and many other topics.
