workshop – REVOLT SHE SAID:

Dekoloniale + feministische Perspektiven auf 68

Revolt she said Decolonial and feminist perspectives on 68

Talk, Lecture Performance, Presentation, Film Screening, Workshop, Walk

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of 1968, we (Alpha nova kulturwerkstatt & galerie futura and District Berlin) have taken the opportunity to engage from feminist and decolonial perspectives with the protest movements in Germany in the 1960s, which also fully redefined the field of art. We are moved by the question of which histories, participants, and voices still remain invisible within the dominant narratives about 1968 and how they can be reactualized for the contemplation and creation of present and future socio-political processes and demands. With a series of events entitled Revolt She Said, we seek to reassess the production of narratives and historiography and to (re)tell the movements of this time from the perspective of their feminist, anti-colonial, diasporic, migrant, Jewish, and Black organizations. Diverse formats open the project up to a broad, inter-generational public and offer possibilities to learn about historical contexts, marginalized knowledge production and current cultures of remembrance. Furthermore, the lecture performance, lecture, film screening, conversation, workshop, and walk, invite all participants to actively take part in creating new narratives of 68.

The series Revolt she said is curated by Andrea Caroline Keppler (District Berlin), Dr. Katharina Koch and Dorothea Nold (alpha nova & galerie futura) in conversation with Sharon Adler, Madeleine Bernstorff, Dr. Lisa Glauer, Karina Griffith, Dr. Natasha A. Kelly, Martina Kofer, Corina S. Kwami, Peggy Piesche, Merle Ströver and PD Dr. Anja Zimmermann.

Revolt she said is a cooperation by alpha nova & galerie futura and District Berlin.
