Workshop with Karen Michelsen Castañón
Karen Michelsen Castañón will share short excerpts from conversations in her video project No Poems for Columbus, which offer a change of perspective on the so-called “discovery” of the American continent. What do these stories mean to us? Do they have anything to do with our everyday and school experiences? We can respond to this and talk about our own experiences. Together we collect the ” material” to create a small Arpillera (textile collage). Mostly books for teenagers are written by adults. The workshop offers a space where young people and adults can exchange ideas on this topic at eye level and learn from each other.
hosted by District Berlin at Salon der Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek, Blücherplatz 1, 10961 Berlin
