Im-possible Spaces. Radical democratic museums in new urban politics

9. December 2021 19:00

Urban-, migration-, museum-fields in tension

The contemporary museum is located in the field of tension where urban and social policies overlap. Space is also becoming tight for cultural institutions. Beyond the mega-museums, new concepts increasingly require a variety of uses and new partnerships. Their logics are not always similar, but sometimes link to those of neighbourhoods, self-organizations and solidarities on the ground.

What happens when the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum, Schwules Museum, housing projects in the context of asylum and flight, and neighbourhood-oriented initiatives work together? What politics and poetics do such mixing concepts open up? How can a common good emerge without following a social mechanology? These and other questions will be discussed by Ahmed al-Nawas (freelance curator and cultural critic) and Stephan Dünnwald (board member of Bellevue di Monaco, Bavarian Refugee Council) with Natalie Bayer (director of the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum).

A series of events in cooperation with: FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum, Schwules Museum, educating/ curating/managing – Master Course for Exhibition Theory & Practice at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Next events in the coming year; more information from January 2022 at www.fhxb-museum.de

The event will be held in English and recorded for later publication. Participation is free of charge.
