Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years

seit 19. Februar | Fotoausstellung von Dagmar Schultz

Die afro-amerikanische, lesbische Dichterin und Aktivistin Audre Geraldine Lorde (1934–1992) hat mit ihrem Einsatz gegen Homophobie, Sexismus und Rassismus die Schwarze Frauen*Bewegung weltweit maßgeblich beeinflusst. Zwischen 1984 und 1992 hielt sich Audre Lorde oft in West-Berlin auf. Hier hielt sie Lesungen und Vorträge, rief zum Kampf gegen Rassismus auf und ermutigte Schwarze Frauen, die eigene Geschichte sichtbar zu machen.

Anlässlich einer Straßenumbenennung nach Audre Lorde zeigt das FHXB Museum die Fotoausstellung „Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years“. Diese Ausstellung war ursprünglich 2014-2015 am John-F.-Kennedy-Institut für Nordamerikastudien der Freien Universität Berlin zu sehen, wo Audre Lorde 1984 eine Gastprofessur innehatte. Die Porträts von Dagmar Schultz zeigen Audre Lorde an verschiedenen Orten in und außerhalb Berlins, sowohl in privaten Momenten als auch in ihrem gesellschaftspolitischen Engagement. 

Intervention in der Dauerausstellung „ortsgespräche – ferngespräche – ortsgeschichten“

Laufzeit: 20.02.2024 – 30.06.2024


We call it Revolution. Transnational Activism in Berlin

Opening | 12 October 2023 | 6pm | FHXB Museum

Duration: 13 October 2023 - 31 March 2024

In many authoritarian-ruled countries, people are standing up for justice, freedom and radical political change - despite the violent repression they have to fear. In recent times, for example, there have been and continue to be protests in Egypt, Chile, Algeria, Sudan, Israel/Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Iran since 2011, which have brought millions of people onto the streets.

Berlin has not remained untouched by these events; the revolutionary movements are also supported from here. Especially people who fled to Berlin as a result of the repressive reactions, but also people from previous movements and their descendants shape the life of the city with their transnational activism. In public space, this can be seen in graffiti with symbols and slogans of the various revolutionary movements, in solidarity demonstrations and actions, artistic projects and research work, among other things.

What are people in Berlin who work in transnational networks for revolutionary movements fighting for? What are they demanding? What role do activists in the diaspora play for revolutionary movements? Which struggles can they connect to? And how are revolutionary events documented?

The exhibition "We Call It Revolution. Transnational Activism in Berlin" explores these questions. With documentary material, video interviews, publications and artistic works by people from political movements, the exhibition addresses aspects of transnational revolutionary movements in Berlin. The exhibition is based on conversations and workshops with activists.

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.

Their demands for social inclusion have played a significant role in shaping society, as have countless projects to combat racism and oppression. However, their individual stories and perspectives remain for the most part unseen and unheard. Their knowledge, experiences and voices are often co-opted or are omitted from the mainstream culture of remembrance and official archives.

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.

This project is a cooperation of Georg-August-University Göttingen, Fachhochschule Kiel, Documentation Centre and Museum of  Migration in Germany e.V. (DOMiD) an FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum.
