BITTER (SWEET) HOME
Changing Perspectives – Decoding the Eurocentric
schwere reiter theater
"The idea that Europe is the center of the world is one that is prevalent today as it ever was – as much in Art and Knowledge production as in culture and politics. What are the challenges and limits against Eurocentrism in the fields of art and knowledge making? How can we collectively decenter eurocentrism in our practices?"
This event is part of the Artist Lab "collective (un)learning spaces" in which B(S)H invites 10 BI*POC artists, cultural workers and producers to take part in a series of interdisciplinary "collective (un)learning spaces". During the first three days B(S)H aims for a "safer space" that empowers and provides conditions for different approaches and creative exchange. "This is where we thrive. This is what we do best. And this is where we need to start in order to engage in a discourse that is informed by BI*POC artists, experiences and practices." While the first part of the Artist Lab involves a series of closed workshops, B(S)H invites everybody to join them on the final, when they try to take their collective experiences and step out of their "safer space" and into a dialog with the public.
4pm – Panel Talk with Q&A
It starts with a panel talk involving workshop facilitators and artists involved in the lab. As BI*POC their experiences directly impact their work. Trying to find (and stick) to one's own voice in an artistic world that is dominated by the white gaze is challenging at best. More even more in sticky times for the arts within the throes of a global pandemic.
6.30pm – Network and Exchange
After a short brake everybody is invited to stay, get to know B(S)H in a relaxed atmosphere and learn more about their experiences during the Artist Lab.
Let’s (ex)change perspectives on decoding the Eurocentric – together!
The Panelists will be published later in the process.
