Muslim*Contemporary sees itself as a multidisciplinary, participatory and dialogical project that aims to reflect on the place of participation of Muslim communities in Austrian society through education, art, dialogue, activism and culture. The goal is to create spaces where important social discourses can be reflected and negotiated through representations. The dialogue in these spaces should not only take place through the exhibited objects and installations, but should become a place of conversation in the truest sense of the word (διάλογος diálogos). The goal is to open up spaces for discussion and debate through various formats. There, people can listen, ask and negotiate. How do we want to live? How do we want to shape our common, diverse future? But it can and should also be a place of development, strengthening and empowerment.
The workshop program on Thursday 11/11/2021 will take place in collaboration with our EU project Smashing Wor(l)ds: Cultural Practices for re/Imagining & un/Learning Vocabularies.
