Einwand Gallery

    The pop-up gallery Einwand follows the permanent exhibition “Migration Moves the City – Changing Perspectives“. Located in the city center it offers a space for workshops, events, and entertaining exhibitions dealing with the history and the present of migrant Munich.

    These exhibitions, workshops and events are created participatory and are to be understood as “objection” (EINWAND = objection in German). Through experimental museum work, new exhibition formats, as well as new historic narratives, are created.

    The Einwand gallery is multi-layered, innovative, spontaneous, multi-perspectival, participative and anti-racist. Free of admission, the Münchner Stadtmuseum offers a cultural space open for and to everyone at Sebastiansplatz.

    The Other Side of the Photo – Being a Refugee

    Photographer Barbara Donaubauer has invited refugees in Munich to come and have their photo taken at a pop-up studio in the Einwand Gallery. The gallery will also serve as a space where refugees can meet during the photo shoot. Participants will have the opportunity to note down their own stories and record their immediate thoughts and observations about the people they meet in the gallery.

    Photo shoot 4 pm – 8 pm: Tuesday, March 14 / Friday, March 17 / Tuesday, March 21 / Friday, March 24

    After the photo shoots, the refugees’ portraits and written accounts will go on public display in the Einwand Gallery. All participants will receive a personal print of their portrait at the opening. The refugees’ images and written accounts are intended to foreground their impressions of the city and their everyday life in Munich. These encounters will also provide an opportunity to reflect on other ways of thinking and what it really means to be a foreigner.

    March 28 – April 16, Tuesday – Sunday 2 pm – 6 pm
