FIRE AND FORGET: Dialogical tours

Fee: Participation is included in the exhibition ticket: Thursday evening ticket (17–21 h): 4 €

During the exhibition's duration, dialogical tours are offered regularly by the following four professional curators and art mediators in turn, each proposing different points of view on the topic. The tours take place every Thursday at 17 h and on two Sundays at 15 h.

Gerrit Golhke, a critic and curator, knows how to shoot, and fears symbols more than he fears weapons.

Greta Hoheisel and Julia Oehme are cultural scholars, whose relation to weapons is shaped by media narratives: images from fiction and from the news, by theoretical engagement, but also by family history. They belong to the team of a7.außeneinsatz, a collective that works on the border between art production and its mediation.

Dejan Marković is an artist living and working in Berlin and in Graz. His work examines mediating and political dimensions of perception and memory. Procedures of processing military images come into focus in this context as well.

Azadeh Sharifi is a culture and theater scholar, who works with post-migration theater, racism and post-colonialism. Weapons are tools for self-defense; the question thus arises of what kinds of weapons are necessary to defend oneself. Her weapon of choice are her voice and her texts.
