Migrantpolitan / Silent University Hamburg
Networking for Beginners
A network meeting for artists with migration background, in order to understand better the complex scene in Hamburg. MIGRANTPOLITAN curator Anas Aboura provides introductory information and useful tips for newcomers. Together we are stronger!
On the occasion of the relaunch of the Silent University Hamburg, a series will take place in cooperation with Migrantpolitan. Film screenings and critical discussions about European asylum systems and the dehumanisation of applicants from the global south are the topics. Some of the filmmakers and other activists are invited to the discussions.
Film screening: Behrouz Boochani & Arash Kamali Sarvestani: »Chauka, please tell us the time«
Chauka? An exotic punctual bird decorating a proud nation's flag or a terrifying solitary prison? Is it part of the identity of a tropical paradise or just an embarrassment for a civilized country in 21th century? Someone is curious to find it out.

Migrantpolitan is a campaigning space at the Kampnagel site where
diasporic and local artists enter into a process of exchange, develop
joint transcultural strategies, and test out new forms of aesthetic
praxis. This microcosmos is a laboratory for collaboration under
conditions of solidarity, where new ideas can be developed, where
cultural self-determination has a home, and where a pinch of anarchy is
always part of the mix. Many activities are open to the public and you
are welcome to join the Migrantpolitan community. For as we all know:
integration is not a one-way street – it’s a bring-in, not a take-away!
Entry is free! Everybody is welcome - but it’s a wrong place for the Right people!
