Colonialist structures of thought and neo-colonialism run through our society and thus also significantly influence our art and culture, as well as our way of looking at it. Artists who move beyond the status quo of the white western majority society are thus climbing new perspectives and prospects for art, culture and society as a whole. On this evening we would like to meet two of them artistically and in conversation.
The evening begins with a film screening in which contemporary artist Alex Mello reflects on the work of Jean Michael Basquiat. Afterwards there will be a reading / spoken word performance by SchwarzRund. This is followed by a conversation, moderated by Benita Bailey, with the two artists: inside with reflections on their artistic work and the decolonization of the arts as a whole.

About Alex Mello & the film JEAN: Alex Mello grew up in Rio de Janeiro and studied acting, dance and acrobatics there. In Germany he completed additional training as a theater and circus teacher. In addition to numerous theater education projects in Brazil and Germany, he is primarily known as a maker and actor for his performances. Alex Mello wrote the script for the short film JEAN. Inspired by the life of the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, the film tells of a painter who deals with ghosts of the past. “He slept with Madonna. Painted in Armani suits. Was rich. Famous. Broken. Took heroin and died of it at age 27 in a New York loft owned by Andy Warhol. As much as the key data on Jean-Michel Basquiat, the first AfricanAmerican artist to achieve world fame. (Quote :
