20:00 Discussion

Starting from Berlin Artistic Research fellow Dominique Hurth’s long-term artistic research on the female guard uniform, her own weaving experiments, and the intertwined histories of forced labor and violence within the production of fabric and yarn in Ravensbrück, this public event will bring together inputs by artists Susanne Kriemann and Bethan Hughes as well as by historian Dr. Insa Eschebach (former director of the memorial of Ravensbrück). Continuities between the agricultural experiments of the SS and environmental movements of the post-war period will be discussed as well as shadows within ecological and biodynamic practices, the presence and visibility of creeping violence in landscapes, herbs and plants and current practices of memorial politics.
