In Erinnerung an den Bombenanschlag am 19.01.2001 in der Probsteigasse und den Nagelbombenanschlag am 09.06.2004 in der Keupstraße, beide begangen durch das rechtsterroristische NSU Netzwerk In Zusammenarbeit mit Künstler, Direktbetroffenen, Betroffenen und solidarischen

Personen und Initiativen entsteht seit mehreren Jahren in Köln ein kritischer Lern- und Erinnerungsort, um ein würdiges Gedenken zu realisieren. Grundidee des künstlerischen Entwurfes ist es Direktbetroffenen- und Betroffenenperspektive zu zentrieren und an der Entstehung des Projektes zu beteiligen, sie vor allem aber auch in Denkmal selbst und zentral sprechen und auftauchen zu lassen.

In einem an dieser Haltung anknüpfenden Projekt kann es nun darum gehen, die visuellen Formate, welche für die Erstellung eines kritischen Archives, welches die Basis für den Erinnerungsort bilden wird zu gestalten, für die Augmented Reality App eine Gestaltung zu entwickeln und eine Onlinearchiv zu entwickeln.

Kurzbeschreibung eurer Institution, Ziele, Struktur, Links

Ulf Aminde
ist Künstler, Filmemacher und Lehrer. Seine Produktionen verhandeln oft den öffentlichen Raum und werden auch dort gezeigt. Viele der Arbeiten handeln von Kollaborationen und kollektiven Lernumgebungen oder initiieren diese sogar.
In seiner filmischen Arbeit verhandelt er das Potenzial der Selbstermächtigung durch die performative Kamera, Verfremdungseffekte im Dokumentarischen und Strategien der Subjektivierung. Seine filmischen Arbeiten zeichnen sich meist durch Kollaborationen mit den Protagonisten und experimentelle Settings aus.
Seine neuesten Arbeiten beschäftigen sich mit Erinnerung und Widerstand. In Köln entwickelt er ein filmisches und durch den Einsatz von Augmented Reality auch partizipatives, antirassistisches Mahnmal in Erinnerung an die rassistischen Anschläge des terroristischen NSU-Netzwerks in der Probsteigasse und Keupstraße.
2020 realisierte er mit dem Autor und Kurator Manuel Gogos und der Autorin Svenja Leiber das erste transnationale Denkmal der Migration - Straße der Arbeit.
Er ist Professor für Performative Räume an der Kunsthochschule Weißensee, Berlin. Dort initiierte er insbesondere die foundationClass für Künstler*innen und Designer\innen, die aus ihren Heimatländern fliehen mussten. www.ulfaminde.de

Stadt Köln NS Dokumentationszentrum, Hans-Peter Killgus
Das -Dokumentationszentrum zu Erforschung der Geschichte des Nationalsozialismus in Köln wurde im Jahr 1988 eingerichtet. Ab 1995 wurde das EL-DE-Haus mit dem Ziel umgebaut, alle Funktionen des - Dokumentationszentrums unter einem Dach zu vereinigen. Im Juni 1997 wurde die Einrichtung und insbesondere seine Dauerausstellung "Köln im Nationalsozialismus" eröffnet. Das Haus ist jedoch nicht nur Gedenkstätte und Ausstellungs- und Veranstaltungsort, sondern nicht zuletzt auch eine Forschungs- und Bildungseinrichtung.
Die sich aus dieser Funktion ableitenden Aufgaben und Angebote sind vielfältig und reichen von einer Spezialbibliothek über Medien- und Arbeitsräume bis hin zur wissenschaftlichen Dokumentation all dessen, was die -Zeit in Köln mit sich brachte.

  1. Laufzeit des Projekts (gibt es wichtige Zwischenschritte, Termine, Deadlines etc.)?

Ab sofort.
Jahrestage der Anschläge Probsteigasse 19.1.2001 und Keupstraße 09.06.2004, Veröffentlichungen der ersten Zeitzeug*inneninterviews Frühjahr 2023 Konzepttreffen Keupstraße → Gestaltung des Kuratoriums des Erinnerungsortes im
Herbst 22 (Termin noch unklar)

  1. Was erwartet ihr von uns in der Zusammenarbeit?

Erwartet wird eine konstruktive und positionierte Zusammenarbeit. Positioniert bedeutet Antirassismus und kritischen Weisssein, Solidarität mit Betroffenen und Direktbetroffenen, die Zentrierung ihrer Perspektiven, wie auch die Verhandlung von aktivistischer Arbeit mit Gestaltungsfragen zusammen zu denken. Für mich ist es wichtig eine Atmosphäre des gegenseitigen Lernens aufzusetzen, was für mich auch bedeutet, dass ich bereit bin meine Erfahrungen und Impulse zu teilen, vor allem aber auch sehr interessiert bin andere Methodiken und Perspektiven kennen zu lernen. Ich freue mich über ein gegenseitiges Interesse.
Für das gemeinsame Vorhaben ist es wichtig die solidarische Haltungsfrage und die Bündnischarakter der Tribunale „NSU Komplex auflösen“ kennen zu lernen. Es könnte Sinn machen hierzu aktivistische Personen aus Halle einzuladen.

DESCRIPTION

 

Thousands of people each year attempt to cross the Mediterranean Sea by boat to seek asylum or to migrate to Europe. Since 2014, 25.413 migrants were reported missing.

The Non-Government-Organisation (NGO) Sea-Watch is conducting search and rescue missions (SAR) in the Mediterranean.

Since their first mission in 2015, Sea-Watch rescued about 45,000 people.

On their missions, the crew is challenged with the physical and psychological state of the guests.

Many of the passengers on board have experienced different kinds of violence such as torture, rape and slavery. During their attempt to cross the sea they often suffer from hypothermia, acid burns, cuts or other injuries.

While people are often ecstatic after being rescued, disappointment and frustration can occur when realizing that their expectations of what can be provided on the ship stay unfulfilled. The goal of the crew is to prevent any too euphoric or disphoric dynamics.

The ship has a very limited amount of space: It can hold a maximum of 500 guests. If the full capacity is reached, each guest is left with half a squaremeter of personal space for sleeping.

On board many different languages are spoken. Most of the guests and crew members understand Arabic, English or French, but sometimes verbal communication is impossible when none of the crew members or guests can pass on information in other languages. The communication between the passengers and the crew is made more challenging by some people's analphabetism. Language barriers and the resulting inaccessibility to information can lead to knowledge hierachies.

Communicating clearly and consistently about daily business on deck, options for dis-embarking and political updates is important. Especially when speaking to a large number of guests on board.

Sea-Watch asked the Studiengruppe-Informationsdesign to help them develop a de-escalative design concept for their new SAR ship Sea-Watch 5.

CONTEXT:

The main focus in our cooperation was to gather tools and research to support the guest care department of the Sea-Watch 5.

The idea of de-escalative design led us to a number of potential improvements, that would prevent or soften tensions between guests to make their passage less exhausting.

We elaborated numerous ideas concerning the structural measures:

New mats for the floor could increase the well-being on board on different levels: Certain colors could lighten the mood and interact with light to make the space feel more welcoming. Thicker and softer mats are more comfortable for sleeping, but have to be easy to clean and resistant to the elements. Long sun exposure, salt water and wear of the materials were criteria we had to consider in all of our design concepts.

To assist the visitor in better orienting themselves we designed a moderation kit in support of the daily speeches. This includes a daily schedule and numerous pictogramms to make information more accessable and revisitable at anytime. Another schedule explains operating hours and information about the medical care department. Other pictograms were needed to highlight shipboard regulations: Signs to identify specific areas, such as the safe space for particularly vulnerable people, the tea station and the hospital room.

Playful elements let the guests stay busy and help time pass quicker. Games that don´t provoke any bigger emotions through winning or losing are preferable to ensure a calm atmosphere. As there are many metal surfaces on board, magnetic games make good use of the space. Laying material in different colors, e.g. magnetic Tangram can serve as a creative outlet. Experimenting with different shapes and patterns can be done alone or as a group activity.

From our first conversation with Sea-Watch, we learned that atlases and maps are fun and powerful tools for the guests to share stories, think about their journey and even dream about possible destinations and hopeful futures. Additionally to creating a geographically correct map, that would give the crew and the guests a basis to share information and their current location, we started thinking about a map that would enable story-telling. Designs for a narrative map could be applied in the hospital room or the safe space that the crew wants to re-design.

These are some of the topics we researched and experimented with visually. We shared our results, possible designs and ideas with Sea-Watch and are excited for a continuing cooperation.

VORLÄUFIGER TITEL DES PROJEKTS
Deeskalation durch Design des Außenraums auf einem Search und Rescue Schiff

KURZBESCHREIBUNG DES PROJEKTS
Seawatch führt Massenrettungen im Zentralen Mittelmeer durch. Menschen versuchen vom afrikanischen Kontinent, meistens aus Libyen, zu fliehen und Europa zu erreichen. Im Durchschnitt sind 300–400 Menschen ca. 7 Tage auf unserem Schiff. An Deck ist die Situation sehr angespannt. Bei dieser Personenzahl hat jeder Mensch nur etwa 0,5m² zum schlafen. Es ist schwierig genug, Essen herzustellen und Provatsphäre ist nicht existent.
Unser Deck ist aus Stahl, darüber ist eine Zeltplane. Der Raum ist sehr funktional gestaltet und vor allem daraus ausgerichtet, dem Salzwasser und dem Wetter zu widerstehen. Kleinere und größere Designelemente können allerdings zur Information unserer Gäste oder zur allgemeinen Deeskalation beitragen. Doch wie können wir mit einem kleinen Budget Stimmung, Angst, Wut und andere Gefühle beeinflussen? Welche Farben sind hilfreich und wo können wir diese verwenden? Was eskaliert Anspannungszustände? Diese theoretischen, aber auch sehr praktischen Fragen interessieren uns sehr, um für unsere Gäste bestmöglich da zu sein.

WAS ERWARTET IHR VON UNS IN DER ZUSAMMENARBEIT?
– Theoretischer Input zur Weiterentwicklung unserer Guest Care Concepts
– Möglichkeiten zur Praktischen Umsetzung wie Stencils für eine Europakarte, Schiffsregeln, etc.
– Rassimuskritisches Design
– Praxisnähe und direkte Umsetzbarkeit
– Interesse an enger Zusammenarbeit zwischen Design und tatsächlichen Bedürfnissen eines Schiffs
– Materialien, Recherche, Referenzen, Dokumente, Vorlagen, Abbildungen etc.

The collection of witness testimonies and quantified statistics are displayed on a board of fields of actions. The players are led to understand: They are not playing the game. The game is playing with them. It is authorities who play with the lives of refugees and deprive them of their human rights. During the concept phase, Abou Bakar Sidibé contributed valuable feedback and insight into his own experience on EU border infrastructures.

ABSTRACT

 
Hoodies, T-Shirts, Bags, Risograph Postcards and Cups were designed, developed and produced to support initial funding acquisition through a crowdfunding campaign. A coherent set of icons and visual elements was proposed to structure and professionalise the visual representation of ROSA on its online platform and print production.
Simultaneously, the cooperation was the framework to develop a working model for communication design students in exchange with NGOs. How do we want to work with activists? What is the role of communication designers within these co-operations? Which spaces of creative freedom do we demand? How do we negotiate authorship, visibility and modes of service and support? Interviews with socially and politically active designers and activists were collected and summarised in a research paper for further engagement in similar co-operations

ABSTRACT

 
The first volume of this publication project covers the court case against the Halle assassin and problematizes the current discourse about right-wing terrorism.
Using DEMOCs protocols for a publication makes them available to academic and public discourse and enables distribution and contextualisation in libraries and the broader public.
The publication project comprises two books, each of which can be read separately, but which relate to and complement each other in terms of content and design. While the first volume documents all 26 days of the trial, the second volume contextualises both the trial itself and the crime and its background.
Both books place the Halle attack in a continuity of right-wing terror in Germany since 1945 and are intended to illuminate the trial as a legal and social form of dealing with this continuous form of terror.

ABSTRACT

 
The aim of the project is to promote dialogue between those in need and searching for health care and doctors, social workers, volunteers, aid organisations and the public. The ‘formats of dialogue’ we develop respond in their diversity to the multiplicity of circumstances, catering to the women*s’ diverse needs and aiming at embracing the plurality of perspectives. We provide an open access online register of resources as well as a publication informing about female* health care issues. We speak to medical professionals, social workers, volunteers and patients, do interviews and organise interdisciplinary panel discussions and hands-on workshops. To raise awareness about this issue we set up a poster campaign as well as graphic material to directly address politicians and express demands. We provide a network of resources, ‘formats of dialogue’ to facilitate access to health care for people with refugee and/or migration experience.

ABSTRACT

 
The project aims at connecting initiatives through an online platform, providing a shared space for local knowledge and practices as well as a place of exchange for specific needs and competencies facing the structural changes in the former eastern German coal regions. In addition facilitating access to small and mid-scale funding provided by the government and private corporations, in order to stabilise current cultural as well as economic activities. Allocating, bringing together, moderating and implementing co-creative solutions.
When presenting the platform to Stabsstelle Mitteldeutschland, the institution organising the process, they avoided clear plans to integrate the platform proposed - therefore a continuous development with CIVIC, Leipzig has been agreed on.

ABSTRACT

 
A website collects voice and text statements by the co-plaintiffs. The website uses a 3D model of the spatial setting in the courtroom as an immersive interface to connect voices and statements by co-plaintiffs to their spatiality and location within the courtroom. Who sees whom within the courtroom? Which perspectives are possible and which are hindered? How does this affect the public perception of the trial by the images possible?
Using this model as a structure to ask questions about the correlation of spatiality and media publicity aims at making the non-neutrality of court spaces visible and discussable. Through this, the project proposes focusing on the voices and opinions of those affected.
As in the case against the aggressor of Halle, 2019, he live-streamed his attacks to the gaming platform Twitch, the court case was not about basic guilt, but vastly about how the public perceives and negotiates the case. Therefore the project also aims at proposing other forms of focusing on the voices of those affected in those cases.

The group collects, structures and distributes knowledge about sea rescue in order to share it with merchant vessels which usually play a minor role in sea rescue. Based on NGO practice experiences of Seawatch, Ocean Wiking and others we put together a booklet informing about Standard Operating Procedures (SOP): How to take people on board? What information to share first, which promises not to make? These briefings among others are provided in a sea-proof tool kit next to most basic materials necessary for sea rescue. By proposing a kit the project also addressed communication and product design to engage and support within the context of sea rescue more broadly.

ABSTRACT

 
The focus of my work for some time now has been on the situation of the Kurdish population in Turkey. The occasion was a workshop stay in Istanbul under the di- rection of „Beyond Istanbul - Center for spatial justice“, in which several NGO‘s participated. This exchange was followed by a six-month cooperation with the „Hafiza Merkezi/Truth Justice Memory Center“, a non-governmental organization dealing with the investigation of crimes against the Kurdish minority in the 1980s and 1990s. Since 2015, when the peace talks between the PKK and the Turkish state ended, this topic has been sadly up-to-date again. On 22 June 2018 I travelled with a delegation via the association „Cenî - Kurdish Women‘s Office for Peace“ to Diyarbakir for independent election observation. As one of about 150 election observers from several European countries I witnessed an election in a state of emergency and a massive intimidation of the population by excessive police and military presence. Diyarbakir is a city of millions which is currently undergoing an urban transformation process. During the clashes between the Turkish state and the youth organization YDG-H, there were several months of curfews in the old town of Sur. The use of heavy artillery intensified the fighting within a very short time, leading to the death of several civilians and massive damage to one of the oldest cities in the world. When the military operation officially ended in March 2016, the government implemented a so-called „urgent expropriation“, whereby almost the entire old town became the property of the government. Since then, about half of the old town has been razed to the ground to make way for villas that are unaffordable for Sur‘s over 20,000 displaced residents.
The focus of my work for some time now has been on the situation of the Kurdish population in Turkey. The occasion was a workshop stay in Istanbul under the …

ABSTRACT

 
The work speculates on fictional results of such processes and questions. And proposes hybrid forms of architecture to illustrate the correlation between the built environment and social relations and society. The results are exaggerated visualisations of architectures which could be created within the concept of anarcho-capitalism, formally sourcing from hostile architectural elements, fences, walls, barbwires, barriers and walls. The images reflect on the effects which excessive theorisation and continuous marketisation of urban space could have and propose a critical reflection on these processes.

ABSTRACT

 
The LEJ GUIDE visualises the operations that take place at the Leipzig/Halle Airport and run invisibly and parallelly to civil transport. Aiming at creating a new visual layer of representation of a hidden infrastructural aspect of the space.
Operations such as deportation, military use as well as displacements in local settlements due to air-traffic-related building activity are made visible within an augmented reality app that can be used while taking part in the official guided tour organised by the airport authorities. Additionally, there is an embedded Google Earth map available through the app, which provides detailed information about legal actions against the airport by local initiatives. Also, additional documents by the European Commission and further texts and background information about these processes are made available through the website.

ABSTRACT

 
Based on the archive provided by the NGO Beyond Istanbul, a publication has been conceptualised collecting photographs and news coverage of the Gecekondu in Istanbul in the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century. The archive gathers over 500 newspaper clippings from all kinds of newspapers in Turkey going back to the first mention in 1932.
The book is to be read as a timeline correlating jurisdictional concerns parallel to housing struggles and social movements. The project aims at activating the archive, making it more present in public discourse and creating visibility of this grassroots counter practice for urban spatial development.

ABSTRACT

 
In cooperating with the group of lawyers and activists [SI] supported the investigation by making the circumstances around the fire visible. Contributing renderings of the spatial arrangements that led to the fire as well as the manipulation of the line of responsibility after the fire had occurred. The role of design was, by using renderings, photomontages and haptic models, to translate those selected elements of the court case and make aspects tangible and discussable in other forums.Images and models aimed at clarifying the risk being taken into account by those facilitating the construction at workers’ dispense and ultimately leading to eleven people dying. The title “Labor Murder” refers to fatal workplace accidents that could be prevented by following legally regulated safety rules. In Turkey, around 2,000 people die of work-related accidents each year.

ABSTRACT

 
The website virtual-memory.org contains a three-dimensional re-visualization model of the destroyed Roboski monument. When moved to the digital realm it can no longer be demolished and can be experienced regardless of location.
Preserving still present information about the monument from Google Street View led to a series of works that show 10 placeholder spheres for possible monuments. They are located in neighbourhoods of Diyarbakır province where more than 30 civilians died during the curfews that have been put in place forcefully in December 2015 by the Turkish government.
Collecting and archiving data and representing this data aims at creating discourse around the memorials that are left undiscussed. Asking questions of hegemony and power structures by proposing commemoration.
