A series of talks called ‘Berlin: We Should Talk’ has set itself the goal of presenting selected persons associated with Berlin’s art scene, such as female visual artists, curators, theoreticians, filmmakers, teachers. Some of them are people exposed in the art world, some of them are less known, not only for the Czech audience but also in the German context. However, they deserve attention. The aim of this series is to mediate the view at important topics dealing with art and its institutions, politics, education and feminism, originating not only in a German context, but also in a global one. We simply have to talk together.
The project is funded by the Czech-German fund for the future.
