♦ MPA-B PROGRAMME: May 26th ♦

A few projects on today’s programme, are wrapping up. Don’t miss the chance to see them. With a city map and some planning you can enjoy a little bit of each! But first, let us introduce you the new projects of the day:

Dovrat Meron’s curated series Beyond Commemoration continues with an intervention to the site of the Holocaust Memorial, titled SMALL QUESTIONS FOR LARGE PLACES by artists Valeria Schwarz & Maik Kerner (17:00-19:00). In this intervention, Valeria Schwarz will explore the boundaries between the terms monument (Denkmal) and memorial (Mahnmal). She will raise the visitor’s awareness to the conventions and behavioural codes evoked by the memorial. While Maik Kerner, as a kind of guardian of site specific consciousness, will discuss with the visitors the rules of the memorial and whether their behaviour within this semi-public place is appropriate or not.

Panik takes place at L’Atelier Kunst(spiel)arum in Kreuzberg.
