we had the pleasure to be part of @isdbund project ‚Telling our Stories’, conceptualizing and designing the digital exhibition.
This project was directed and created by Jeanne Nzakizabandi and Siraad Wiedenroth. Thank you for the trust.
Compiled as a 7 chapters podcast and digital exhibition ‚Telling our Stories‘ aims to attempt to narrate Black German history in its ambivalence and interconnection. In doing so, it focuses on the theme of migration and raises questions such as: how do subversive moments manifest? Where does the potential for identification exist for us today? What can be learned from a glimpse into the past?
