Behörde für Kultur und Medien

As a Webminar-ZOOM organize the Department of Culture and Media, Hamburg the 3rd. Workshop around the topic of how to decolonize the Bismarck-Statue in Hamburg, which is the largest of its kind with 34 meters high and was built after Bismarcks death beginning of the 20th. century.

Therefor I got invited. Mainly because last summer this year I curated the project BISMARCK-DEKOLONIAL and invited artists from the former African German colonies.
