Unlearning Racism

8 August 2021 to 11 January 2022

Activists and artists - among others from the street art scene - take an artistic stance on topics such as racism, colonialism and representations of oneself and others in the imperial spaces of the Weltmuseum Wien.

About the exhibition

About the exhibition

Re:Present is the theme of the Calle Libre Street Art Festival 2021. Together with the Weltmuseum Wien, the aim is to create a platform for an artistic discourse on the cultural legacy of colonialism and the consequences for the countries affected by the exploitation of their (human) resources.  With this exhibition project, Calle Libre and the Weltmuseum Wien want to facilitate dialogue. To this end, activists are invited to actively contribute critical voices and empowerment initiatives to the exhibition.

The works, some of which will be created directly on the walls of the exhibition spaces, create connections to other works in public space that were created in 2021 and in recent years as part of the Calle Libre Festival. Eleven artistic positions by international artists and photographers will be on display at the Weltmuseum Wien. In particular, the artworks aim to promote an honest dialogue on difficult topics inside and outside the museum.
