the economy of borders
we lost our soft soul, by crossing the borders
Exhibition on the facade of the City hall of Tiergarten
The exhibition will be accompanied by a demonstration and an assembly
June 9th, 2020, 5PM, Mathilde-Jacob-Platz 1, 10551 Berlin
We would like to invite you to participate in a poster campaign we are working on with artists and activists. We are dressing the facade of the Berlin Moabit Town Hall with large posters. At the moment we cannot know what the consequences of the big “shut down” will be, but what we do know for sure is that the borders must open again. Open borders for women! Our mothers, grandmothers and sisters must be able to cross the borders.
The women who are most affected by war, poverty, displacement and the nationalist politics of states have the least chance of moving across borders.
We know that borders are the origin of war. War is the fuel of prosperity. Women only benefit from this prosperity to a limited extent and only if they submit to the existing order.
We say: Instead of regressive narratives of division and polarization – a socio-political doctrine of love for diversity and a deep understanding of solidarity!
Let’s start together!
