We get people talking about topics that have gone under the radar due to invisible and stealthy structures that keep us oppressed and silenced.
We access our knowledge and inner creativity to discover ways we can liberate speech, by putting down expressions that we can mutually understand. We will gather words from all languages that have decolonial power, especially words which mix languages together
Together we will illustrate these words and publish them in a self-made magazine. This will also inspire lyrics for a decolonial Hip-Hop workshop.
The outcomes of this workshop will be presented as part of the public programme of the Brücke Museum’s exhibition Exhibition Whose Expression? The Brücke Artists and Colonialism.
Number of participants: Max 18

De-Germanize Yourself Workshop Concept
We at UdK stand in solidarity with those affected by colonialism. Yes, colonialism is still happening and in many new forms. Marginalised groups have been pioneers of resistance and struggles for gender equality, civil rights, queer pride, anti-racism and climate justice. To them we are grateful.
There is still much work to be done by all of us. It is only through the dismantling of patriarchal systems that we can offer healthier life trajectories, so that we can say in the face of patriarchy “enough is enough, because we are enough”. Before we can begin to dismantle harmful systems we need to look at ourselves and how we contribute to and uphold these systems. We shall be the change we want to see, we shall be liberated. This is our pledge.
