“Reframing Worlds” is an exhibition that brings together work by Berlin artists dealing with the lives and works of a diverse group of women including Gertrude Bell, Agatha Christie, Maria Mandessi Bell Diop, Mia May, Sayyida Salme Princess of Oman and Zanzibar alias Emily Ruete, and Ida Pfeiffer.
Colonialist influenced mindsets, imagery, and categories of knowledge that are still in effect today are the departure points; their historic structures are to be laid bare and examined. The artists follow experiences of oppression, resistance, and migration in their research, which encompasses travel reports, life stories, plant worlds, photographs and other objects. They investigate where and in what ways traces are still visible, and critically discuss ways to deal with archives and archival material today as well as their own roles as knowledge producers.

The exhibition not only reveals gaps in the historiography, but also challenges the kind of knowledge that was produced in the context of the colonial projects and circulated Europe. Who produces knowledge about the world and in which way? How do the complex intersections between racism and sexism continue to affect us, and how can we imagine and practise feminism transculturally and in solidarity?

Film screening "Audre Lorde – Die Berliner Jahre 1984 bis 1992" by Dagmar Schultz (de)
nGbK event space, 1st floor

[...]


(79 Min.)
In the 1970s and 1980s, Audre Lorde's texts and lectures defined and inspired feminist, lesbian, African American, and women of color movements in the US and around the world. The film Audre Lorde - the Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 (2011, 79 min.) documents her influence on the political and cultural scene in Germany and conveys her contributions to the German discourse on racism, xenophobia, anti-semitism, class oppression and homophobia. It tells how Lorde encouraged both Afro-German women to write and publish, and challenged white German women to recognize the importance of their white privileges and deal with differences in a constructive way. The film explores the emergence of an Afro-German movement and the origins of the anti-racist movement before and after the German reunification, allowing a historical analysis and understanding of current debates on identity and racism in Germany.

[...]


For the new edition of postcards for her work "Woman To Go" in the exhibition, Mathilde ter Heijne has done research about women living in, or born into interracial marriages in the 19th century in Africa. The performance will feature the biographies of some of these women. Ida Maria Getzen Leinhos (1864–1926) and Matilde Kleinschmidt (1857–19?) lived in Cape Town and were both married to a white settler. Frances Abigail Olufunmilayo Thomas (1900–1978), Seh-Dong-Hong-Beh (18? - 18?), and Johanna Vitringa Coupon lived in the Gold Coast trading region (nowadays Ghana, Togo, Benin and Nigeria).
Birgitte Semekonawo and her Brother Thomas Tossou will drum the text of above mentioned biographies on the Ewoun. This kind of sonic language was used by La Negra Carlota (?–1844), a Yoruban enslaved woman living in Cuba who launched a rebellion through drums. a sonic language that was unknown to the colonizers.
