URBAN BODIES PROJECT – HAMBURG Re-Mapping Hamburg Lisboa with
Goethe Institute Hamburg & Lisbon


Meeting point: Bismarck-Statue(Alter-Elbpark) in Richtung
Start: 5:30 pm /on Saturday also at 2:30 pm.

The Goethe-Institut Hamburg and Yolanda Gutiérrez invite, as part of the project „remapping Hamburg-Lisbon“, to an artistic intervention in selected locations of the above-mentioned project to explore and process colonial traces in the urban geography of the cities of Hamburg and Lisbon. In Hamburg, the ensemble from 2017 will come together to present dance interventions combined with a silent-walk.

„Remapping“ questions on a comparative basis what role colonial traces have left behind in the city of Hamburg as it is lived today and how they continue to have an effect on our everyday life here. These places will initially be dealt with on the basis of texts and interviews by academics and activists. At the same time as the texts are published on a separate website, selected sites will be the subject of an artistically intervening city tour to enable visitors to actively engage with these places.
