Dancers and artists from Hamburg and Kigali perform a political decolonization of the future at DECOLONYCITIES in Hamburg's urban space. If the common history is made tangible, this common history can be better reflected on in the future. Through the project, colonial history is made in Hamburg and rejected questions are addressed: What influence did Hamburg have on German colonialism? What is the colonial past between Kigali and Hamburg? How is this story archived? And what is the relationship to this story for today's people in Kigali and Hamburg? The MARKK in Hamburg is a place of performance and the center of these questions. Right here is a new archive that belongs to us to experience and question the common colonial history of these two cities. The visibility and experience of an archive is seen through illustrations and bodies performatively and artistically. DECOLONYCITIES is a project that works at the interface of dance, visual arts and media work and a process of decolonization works and will make it perceptible. Not instructive, not didactic. It is not about understanding knowledge or facts, about a change of perspective, about an artistic way of approaching this topic differently.

Political Bodies / Yolanda Gutiérrez & Jens Dietrich

Political Body hat im Englischen eine doppelte Bedeutung. Als feststehender Begriff bezieht sich der Ausdruck auf eine politische Institution. Und wortwörtlich genommen geht es um das Politische des Körpers. Mit dem Projekt Political Bodies beabsichtigten wir die Bandbreite zwischen den beiden Lesarten sichtbar zu machen: Welche politische Rolle übernimmt der Körper in der Kunst, und wie wird aus einer künstlerischen Bewegung eine politische.

Die ersten Ideen für die Tanzperformance Political Bodies entstanden, als Yolanda Gutiérrez 2012 eine Künstlerresidenz an der Ecole des Sables in Toubab Dialaw machte und mit Tänzern aus der Hip-Hop-Szene Dakars in Kontakt kam.
