Address: Oranienstraße 25, 10999 Berlin. Meeting point: Main entrance
Host: Stefanie Wiens

“Platz da!” - make room for art mediators with “disabilities”

The outreach concept “Platz da!” („Give way! Make room!“) begins with the question:  who actually mediates art and do how perspectives change if these are persons with disabilities. The project developed by Stefanie Wiens initially addresses female mediators – the women who attend to the works exhibited at the nGbK and who would like to develop their own outreach strategies. Together with the visitors, they break new ground when approaching art.

9:00 Berlinische Galerie - Museum of Modern Art.

Address: Alte Jakobstraße 124–128, 10969 Berlin. Meeting point: Main entrance
Host: Michaela Englert

The project “Culture with all senses”

The project Kultur mit allen Sinnen (Culture with all senses) is a collaboration between Deutscher Blinden- und Sehbehindertenverband and Berlinische Galerie . It´s aim is to improve access to the museum and its collection for blind and vision-impaired visitors. During a process of two years, blind and partially sighted people that are experts on accessibility and museum´s staff worked together in a quest for finding practical implementation possibilities for the three fields of orientation, audio guide and tactile media. Reiner Delgado (DBSV) and Michaela Englert (BG) will present the outcome of the project including an app, tactile models and a guidance system,which will be published  in October 2017.

9:00 FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum, Adalbertstraße 95A, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg. Meeting point: Main entrance 
Host: Stefanie Kuhn

Exhibitions “ortsgespräche” and “ferngespräche”

The exhibition “ortsgespräche” (“Local calls”/ local talk) illustrates the history of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg by presenting single places of the district. These places tell of arrival and integration, of discrimination and exploitation, of political and social conflict, of work and leisure time. The many memories  of the history of these places are as different as are the people living in this city. Their memories may corroborate or contradict each other. The exhibition “ortsgespräche” strives to do justice to this diversity of voices.

“Ferngespräche” (“Long-distance calls”/ talk on faraway countries) is an expansion of this exhibition. Here, as new Berlin citizens, refugees in their roles as new citizens of Berlin present their personal views on the city and the district they live in. In three series of workshops and in co-operation with video- and performance artists the participants produce twelve video collages on remembrance, participation and the long lasting process of arrival.

10:30 Lunch break (independently)
