Founded 2018 in Berlin, DE

Die Remise is a living archive, a meeting place, a learning and exhibition space for visitors of all ages. The project started with the archive of the Nürtingen Elementary School set up in an old carriage house in the schoolyard as a way of looking into the history of schools and migration in the surrounding neighborhood of Berlin-Kreuzberg. Die Remise deals with the history of institutional racism in German schools, in an attempt to bring forward the marginalized voices of those who attended the school from the 1960s onwards, some now the parents of current pupils. The space attempts to bring neighbors, students, and teachers together to meet and share these silenced stories in a safe and welcoming environment. By helping these stories to be told, Die Remise intends to raise consciousness on the impact that perpetuated whiteness has had on the education system. This racialization and structural discrimination is still experienced by families today, and similar archives exist silently, in schools and homes, all around us.

For the first exhibition of Die Remise in February 2019, students, together with contemporary artists, drew on archival material from the school to ask what kind of knowledge is important for them to bring forward and how it should be displayed. Dislocating Die Remise by showing it here is an invitation not only to engage with stories coming from a different neighborhood of the city, but also to share the stories you carry with you.
