Exhibition Opening: We Who Move the World Forward – Voices of Resistance in Germany’s Migration Histories

ACUD Galerie is kindly inviting you to the opening of our upcoming group exhibition: We Who Move the World Forward – Listening to resistance inside Germany’s Migration Histories”

IW*S will be showcasing our work as part of the We Move the World Forward transmedia program. This program is curated by @‌nbikoro and @‌fetewei and presented by @‌acudmachtneu (instagram).

The exhibition examines intimate intersectional perspectives of mental health and mobility in Germany’s migration histories focusing on BIPOC and LGTBQ* testimonies. The contributions of visual works, workshops, and multi-disciplinary archives share protection resources as tools for empowerment, gathering, and prevention planning.

The approach of mobile transmissions and community-led interactions encourages the development of safer spaces and collaborations that allow us to focus on a research project at the interse ction of law, education, healthcare, art, and activism that cannot be separated from the discourse of migrant experiences and histories that Fasia Jansen, Semra Ertan, May Ayim and Sista Mimi so profoundly shared in their lives. The artists and activists respond to their experiences of migrant struggle and structural discrimination when looking at the German system and its connection to its neo-colonial histories.

Participating artists: Aïssatou Ciss…. International Women* Space, Cana Bilir-Meier, Imad Gebrael, Yergalem Taffere, Wilson Mungai, Ina Wudtke, Nino Bulling, Muhammed Lamin Jadama, Thabo Thindi, Zwoisy Mears-Clarke, HerrFrau Meko, Garden Archives/Fetewei Tarekegn.

The exhibition is part of a 6 chapter project including conversations, radio show, live performances, and workshops at Kunsthaus ACUD between February and July 2024. Read the full program here and follow @wewhomovetheworldforward on instagram for more!
