tazkir - Excavations of the present

Creative spaces of memory and cultural exchange

The Tazkir project focuses on the cultural heritage of the Middle East. Young Berliners with an immigrant background engage in art history and artistic practice with the artifacts that were brought to the Pergamon Museum from the Ottoman Empire during the German colonial period. For the first time they see the cultural treasures of their home countries in the original. Building on scientifically guided tours through 'Multaka: Meeting Place for Refugees', young people learn about the history of the cultural objects in the museum. In a transformation process guided by the artist Nahed Mansour, the impressions are discussed, sorted and assembled into a spatial installation in the 'Kunsthaus 360°' in Neu-Hohenschönhausen and in the 'Museum Lichtenberg'. The result is a "self-made museum" that focuses on remembering (Arabic: Tazkir) as an awareness of (migration) history and its mediation.
