Festival Launch and World Refugee Day Weekend

Following on from our successful festival launch we are looking forward to the next four weekends of DISPLACED 2015.

The launch-weekend featured a panel-discussion on the theme of Displacement and the meeting of art and science, there was a delicious buffet prepared by Luckenwalde resident Syrian refugee Marwan Osso, a guided tour of the exhibition, and the German-British duo Refugees KM gave a performance inspired by the correspondence of exiled Mendelsohn Hall architect Erich Mendelsohn and his wife. The weekend was topped by a performance by the world-famous Maharaj Trio.

In addition to the DISPLACED 2015 Exhibition with artworks by our selection of 32 international artists, we will offer a large interactive sculpture-board-game, recycled-art and music workshops, screenings in our Red Cross Video-Tent, and bouncy castles for the children – all at the Mendelsohn Hall. We will be screening Iva Radivojevic’s award-wining film Evaporating Borders, as well as short films on the theme of Displacement by artists from Bulgaria, Hungary, Argentina, Georgia, Germany, USA and the UK.

Wish-Cushions : Call-Out for Partcipants

Join us!

Cushions needed! Wish-Cushions, filled with your good wishes for those who have suffered and need to start all over again.

Sew a colourful pillow, put in it your good wishes for the refugees who arrive in the state of Brandenburg from around the world, and we will place it inside our tents, provided by the German Red Cross, ready for you to comfortably sit on and watch the films and videos we have lovingly selected for you, and which explore this important issue.

The tents will be erected within the Mendelsohn Hall, whose architect and the original owners were exiled from Nazi Germany in the 1930s: a reminder and an opportunity to uncover to what extent flight, displacement and expulsion are interwoven into our lives.

The messages you all send us inside your cushions, placed in the restored hall, will be a colourful, soft, and joyous welcome – an opportunity for interaction and discussion.

We’re very grateful for your partcipation!!

If you have any questions about the Wish-Cushions, please send us an email to displaced2015@schlachten.org (subject: “Wish-Cushions”) or fill out the form below:
