IN PLAIN SIGHT. #ICHBINSICHTBAR
***Exhibition opening 27th August, 7 pm***
"In Plain Sight. #ichbinsichtbar" is a guest exhibition of Kosmos e.V. at the Weltkulturen Labor accompanying the exhibition "HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT. From Being Rendered Invisible and Becoming Visible“.
In portraits and statements, young people talk about their very different realities of life, their experiences with racism and discrimination, their wishes and demands on society and political leaders. The aim of this exhibition is to draw attention to the lack of representation of young people by creating a space for them to make their voices heard and as a result become more visible.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a social media campaign to spread the message and goals in public. Under the hashtag #ichbinsichtbar, young people get the opportunity to share their stories on social media in the format of the exhibition images. The exhibition addresses primarily young people who are not heard and seriously considered enough in our society because of their experiences of racism and discrimination. Thus, the exhibition is meant to serve as an empowerment space for young people and make them and their voices visible and heard. At the same time, the exhibition welcomes everyone to show the diversity of society and the visibility of different realities of life.
According to the More in Common study (2019), 45% of 18–29-year-olds in Germany belong to the "Invisible Third" of our society, which is less committed than others to democracy and is often disappointed by democratic institutions. Among this 45% of young people, the number of young immigrants is even lower. The purpose of this exhibition is to enrich the public discourse by focusing on the "Invisible Third" within society.
The innovative nature of the exhibition lies in the way the topic is addressed and narrated. The exhibition material consists mainly of portrait pictures of young people who tell their stories in personal statements. In addition, the exhibition provides auditory elements that can be listened to via QR-Codes. The audio files consist of descriptions of feelings, thoughts, monologues, and dialogues on the subject. In addition to visual elements, the auditory elements provide further access to information and thus are an important part of this exhibition.
