Reading in the Void - Marginalized Artists in Germany - Zoom Lecture by Azadeh Sharifi, 8.10.2022, 6 p.m. (broadcast live at Schaudepot)
Which artists and artistic productions have been and are being collected and archived in Germany? Whose art and cultural production is racialized, ethnicized and marginalized? And how can this void be dealt with? This lecture will use historical examples to discuss German memory culture, especially when it comes to racialized and migrant artists.
