G/hosting the Past by Atis Rezistans | Ghetto Biennale

Location: St. Kunigundis

Languages: English


Starting from the dialectics of (dis)possession that connect Haitian and German intellectual, cultural, and material heritages, this event by lumbung artist Atis Rezistans | Ghetto Biennale engages in joint historiographical experimentation of artists and academics.

To actualize the hidden heritages, silenced (hi)stories, and unrealized potentials haunting exhibitions like the Ghetto Biennale and documenta, it asks how we can converse with the (un)dead ghosts from the past to haunt the future.
