Tiny OyoUnity @ Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt | Maurice Leoni-Osion: The Home Remixtape Artchives Workshop
Montag 9. Oktober 15:00 - 18:00
Tiny Oyounity presents:
"The Home Remixtape Artchives" - a workshop by Maurice Leoni-Osion
From late August to mid-October, our Tiny House travels through Berlin districts, engaging interactively with the local community and partners at cultural venues and institutions. Through a diverse range of workshops, the aim is to connect decolonial knowledge and artistic practices with marketing, design, and knowledge dissemination.
Next Stop: @ Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt (Bat-Yam-Platz 1, 12353 Berlin)
For many of us, home is where we are born, reside, genealogically rooted, or establish a sense of belonging. However, this definition of the home is not always shared by a broader population, specifically marginalized communities, who, like everyone, should be accepted for instinctual birthrights to provide an inner structure/shelter to protect cultures, languages, loved ones, stories, dreams, memories, and futures.
The Home ReMixtape Artchives is a series of art workshops utilizing the creation of home mixtapes as an archival approach to document, protect and preserve untold stories centered around the home experience. Participants will explore mixed media; graff writing, illustrations, timelines, found sounds, interviews, audio recordings, songs, and music production to collaborate on a community mixtape. The goal is to provide a creative space for various voices to tell their younique stories while finding a cohesive rhythm amongst each other that celebrates future narratives from their neighborhoods.
The workshops will culminate as an interactive exhibition at Oyoun on 16 - 30 November 2023, where the public will have access to the 5-volume mixtape cassettes series, each representing a community archive from five districts throughout Berlin.
Tickets: Free admission! | Registration here

Maurice is a multidisciplinary artist and director from Richmond, VA., currently residing in Berlin, Germany utilizing the culture of HipHop to produce poetry, music, photography, films, art programs, exhibitions, and cultural experiences to celebrate stories to preserve the stories of our youths, communities, and ancestors.
Since he can remember, Hip-Hop has always been like an extended relative in his family, which has played a significant role in defining who he is. Under her supervision and care, Maurice dug through the crates of his grandma's record collection, was reprimanded for tagging (writing) names in Crayola on walls, watched other family members perform acrobatic dance moves at cook-outs, listened to Muhammad Ali kick rhymes predicting his knockouts, and resampled his aunts and uncles' fashion aesthetics. As a result, Maurice was consistently provided with an openness to be creative and courageous in discovering self-identity and expression. This allowed him to pop and break through the barriers of his living conditions with a newfound imagination and love for storytelling—notably, introducing a long-lasting oral tradition of rhymes, spoken words, calls and responses, and songs that have informed his practice as an artist and educator.
The project Tiny OyoUnity is part of the initiative DRAUSSENSTADT funded by the Berliner Projektfonds Urbane Praxis and the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Gesellschaflichen Zusammenhalt.
