In diesem Jahr sind mehr Menschen auf der Flucht und der Suche nach Asyl als nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Aus der Verzweiflung über ihren täglichen Überlebenskampf fliehen Millionen von Menschen aus ihrer Heimat. Sie hoffen ihre Würde, wenn schon nicht in der Gegenwart, wenigstens in der Zukunft zurück zu bekommen. Continue reading →

Wohin fliehen Menschen, wenn sie nach Berlin fliehen? Für zwei Wochen bietet das Gorki über 30 internationalen Künstler*innen und Aktivist*innen eine Plattform, um dieser Frage nachzugehen. Neben künstlerischen Beiträgen werden täglich Inszenierungen, Debatten und Filme die Grenzen thematisieren, die sichtbar und unsichtbar die Bevölkerungen Berlins und Europas zerreißen.

WE WILL RISE gives a space for reflection for the people of the refugee movement aswell as an exchange with people who are not (yet) part of the movement. It is a growing exhibition and
archive. It focusses especially on the time since the tent actions and the protest march from
Würzburg to Berlin, the protest camp on Oranienplatz and the squatting of the former school in Ohlauerstr. It has the aim to make history visible and accessible and to use it for the present and the future. The exhibition and archive is just a beginning. It can only grow if you take part in it and add what is important to you.
We want to struggle together with you for a permanent place for this work. Continue reading →
Our movement, which is a self-organized refugee movement centered in Germany, has organized exhibitions in order to share the experience of the resistance we have been holding on the streets in Germany and all around Euroupe for many years with different groups. We had the first exhibition in a big tent at Ostbahnhof. During the two weeks of exhibition, there were also many different seminars and concerts in the tent.
We have our writings and paintings printed on big wooden blocks in this exhibition. Besides, people can use the laptops and headphones in order to listen and watch the interviews, films and music about our resistance. All the published news about us and our internal discussions are archived in a way that whoever wishes can reach them.
Our exhibition is on display at the Kreuzberg Museum in Berlin at the moment. Our archives will be exhibited there until the end of October. However, we had a shocking controversy at the opening of exhibition. The chief of the museum said that he did not want the piece we put right at the entrance of the exhibition because it was criticizing the mayor of Kreuzberg. They did not want the critique about the mayor, who actively participated in the attacks against our spaces or resistance and in the demobilisation operations towards the resistance, at the front side of museum.
