Postmigrant Writings | 04.09.2021, 2pm-6pm
With our third event on the special exhibition “Cultural Affairs – Art Without Borders”, at the Grassi Museum für Angewandte Kunst, we focus on graphic design and literature from a (post)migrant and racism-critical perspective. With exciting speakers from the fields of design, poetry and political activism, we will explore, among other things, the question: In which way language and writing construct our reality and which stereotypes can be uncovered to tear down borders. The musical contributions of the day will be by Ali Hasan and Suetszu.
Moderation: Angelika Kim
