A Different View: Postcolonial Perspectives at the Schwules Museum*

We are searching for Research Fellows / Curators for the Schwules Museum* in Berlin.

Extended Deadline for Applications: February 28th 2016

With this funding programme, the Federal Cultural Foundation enables guest curators and researchers from abroad to work at museums or public collections in Germany for a duration of 18 months.

The Project ‘A Different View’ examines whether the emancipation movements of Western industrial countries can provide impulses for the political and cultural struggles of queer communities in the Global South. Conversely, the project will also explore what queer communities in Germany and specifically the Schwules Museum* can do to resolve the conflicts in post-migrant society. The fellowship wishes to apply participative approaches with self-managed organisations of post-migrant queers who traditionally criticise museums, their organisational forms and exhibition practices as expressions of a “white”, “male” culture of dominance.
