    Δ *FULLY BOOKED* CITY TOUR WITH FRANKFURT POSTKOLONIAL

    As part of the exhibition “HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT. From Being Rendered Invisible and Becoming Visible”

    This city tour critically explores traces of German colonial history locally in Frankfurt. Starting out from the Weltkulturen Museum, the participants will stop off at various points along the way that illustrate German society (not) reappraising and (not) remembering its colonial history. We will focus on the theme of historical and contemporary references to colonialism at the local level. This is an attempt to address traces of colonialism in present-day German society – specifically in Frankfurt – and thereby gain an awareness of the power inequalities that first emerged in the colonial past and still linger to some extent.

    This tour of the city does not include a visit to the exhibition “Hidden in Plain Sight”.

    You can only participate if you provide evidence that you do not have Covid. Your negative test should be no more than 24 hours old. People who are completely vaccinated or who have recovered from Covid are exempt from the testing requirement.

    Please note: as we would like to avoid reproducing racist or colonial language or images on this tour, we would ask you to be considerate in this respect.

    Meeting point: Weltkulturen Museum, Schaumainkai 37, Frankfurt am Main

    Δ F.I.M. RAUMBESPIELUNG #3

    An interaction between improvised music, dance and public spaces

    Uschi Wentzell – saxophone – and Ruben Hausmann – horn – will perform an improvisation on the terrace of the Weltkulturen Museum.

    After half an hour, still improvising, they will make their way towards Eiserner Steg footbridge. Upon arrival they will meet up with fifteen other musicians who are coming from other locations along Museumsufer, and all of them will play together for around twenty minutes in an interaction with three dancers. Then it’s on to the high point of the event in the courtyard of the Museum Angewandte Kunst: a thirty-minute group improvisation for musicians and dancers.  

    In charge of this joint improvisation will be an experienced musician from the Frankfurt improvisation scene, and the performance will involve top-class musical improvisers who are known throughout Germany, along with musicians and dancers from Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region.

    An event by Forum Improvisierter Musik

    “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour coding worlds”

    with Severine Meier and Iris Loew

    Our world is full of colour, but do all cultures see it in the same way? While the scientific basis for perception is identical for everyone, light waves can’t really explain how we name our impressions of colour, the number (and kind) of categories we divide these colours into, or the meanings and associations we ascribe to them.

    Using various objects from the exhibition, Severine Meier and Iris Loew show how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.

    “HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT. From Being Rendered Invisible and Becoming Visible”

    With Julia Albrecht (curator, Weltkulturen Education) and Lea Sante (assistant curator)

    “Hidden in Plain Sight” provides an opportunity to see or hear things from (potentially) unfamiliar perspectives. Combining objects from the collection with five artistic responses, the exhibition takes a critical stance to colonialism and the associated consequences, which are still felt today. In this tour, Stephanie Endter and Lea Steinkampf will take you through the exhibition together. 

    The tour will also show various views and close-ups of the exhibition. The conversation will take place on Zoom.





    Free of charge.

    Δ ONLINE CURATORS’ GUIDED TOUR

    The making of “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”. Setting up an exhibition – in pictures.

    With the curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann (Oceania curator) and co-curator Vanessa von Gliszczynski (Southeast Asia curator)

    Setting up an exhibition takes just a few weeks – but that period has been preceded by many months of intensive planning that involves thinking about and developing the theme, as well as coming up with a design. Once the exhibition is set up it all seems highly coherent. The themes, the exhibits and the exhibition design are all interconnected to form a complex and meaningful whole. But what lies behind the process of developing an exhibition? How are the exhibits chosen? And what conservation conditions have to be considered? What role does the architecture of our exhibition building play in the design, what impact does the design have on the theme, and how can the exhibits be displayed appropriately? In short: what happens behind the scenes before we open the exhibition?

    Curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann and co-curator Vanessa von Gliszczynski will be your guides for this glimpse behind the scenes, giving you some insights into the fascinating process of developing the exhibition “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”.

    The talk will be accompanied by visuals and followed by a chat, all via Zoom.

    Δ LIVE WORKSHOP FOR CHILDREN

    “Sky Blue, Crocodile Green, Lemon Yellow”

    The world of colours is truly thrilling. What colours are there and where do we find them? In nature we come across colours wherever we look: in plants, in the animal kingdom, and in rocks and minerals. Berries dye our hands red or blue. Colours can also be seen in many different combinations on animals: for example on a butterfly’s wings, the feathers of birds, and the skin and fur of various creatures.

    How do colours smell? Can we taste them? First of all we will discover the colours in the exhibition “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”. After that we will produce our own colours from natural materials.



    For children from 6 years old.
