Juliane Schmidt's and Anna Till's project Inscribed Rituals - Bodies in Politics. Pioneers of Marzahn (2014) deals with visible and invisible rituals carried out during socialist times by children in the GDR’s youth pioneer organisation. The artists collaborate with a group of local children from a youth centre inhabiting the former Haus der Pioniere (House of Pioneers), the last of its kind inaugurated in the Marzahn district of east Berlin in 1988. Together they collect the gestural memories of previous generations of socialist pioneers living in the neighbourhood of Marzahn.

A project in collaboration with Galerie M, FAIR and Peter-Pan-Schule, supported by the program Künste Öffnen Welten of the Federal Association of Cultural Child and Youth Education (BKJ).
