Critical Whiteness & Racism(Criticism) in Free Theater

Labor Ateliers | Dachauer Str. 112d, 80797 München, Deutschland

Amo -Braunschweig Postkolonial e.V. offers a workshop for the discussion and further education on the topics of critical whiteness, racism (critique) and privilege in the context of the independent theater scene. 

In this workshop we would like to give the participants the basic knowledge of how racism works in our society, how to recognize the mechanisms of racism and what it is about one's own positioning within society. 

In the further discussion, we will finally practice taking a critical look at artistic practice and work with practical case studies. The workshop is aimed at both white and BIPOC artists.

Rosa Berfin Kuşkaya lives and studies art education, history and political science in Gießen. In addition to assistant directing and a federal voluntary service at the Staatstheater Braunschweig in children's and youth theater and acting, she is active in the racism-critical educational initiative Amo - Braunschweig Postkolonial e.V.. Since 2021 she has been involved in "Eski Ustalar - Alte Meister", a theater project dealing with the first generation of so-called "Gastarbeiter:innen", and is actively involved in the hip hop dance scene. 

Céline Bartholomaeus studied "Art in Action" and "Art Sciences" at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste (HBK) in Braunschweig.

Besides working as a lecturer at the HBK Braunschweig for "Theater in die Schule", she sifts for juries like "Hart am Wind" or "Best OFF Festival Freier Theater".
