Workshop: ›Me – You – We and the Climate Crisis‹

Marwa Arsanios’ first solo exhibition in Germany shows nature as a threatened habitat and shelter, especially for women in northern Syria, Lebanon and Colombia. In order to continue to coexist with nature, the women there fight for their right on land against the ruling regimes. Since their survival depends on protecting their environment, they are resisting with weapons. Using different media such as film, banners and drawings, Arsanios explores those state-independent and self-organised initiatives. As well as the topics: Land distribution, women’s rights and radical democracy. Her works feel real and honest, especially as she personally visits the affected areas and the people living there. She also presents individual personalities to challenge the Western prevailing portrayal of ›oppressed‹ Muslim women.

In role plays, still scenes and other theatre pedagogical approaches and discussions we want to creatively deal with the questions of the exhibition.

Concept: Marie Franka Breckner, Annika Spiegelhalter (PH students of art education Do—Mehves Ungan)
