Tiny OyoUnity @ Korea Verband | Pop-Up-Event: Spicy Ginkgo Collective – Archive-in-the-making for Statue of Peace
30.September 2023 14:00 - 18:00
Tiny OyoUnity presents:
Archive-in-the-making for Statue of Peace
Facilitated by: Spicy Ginkgo Collective
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.
Fourth stop: @ Korea Verband (Quitzowstraße 103, 10551 Berlin) | The exact stop ist at Friedensstatue (Bremer Str. 41, 10551 Berlin)
The project "Archive-in-the-making for Statue of Peace" aims to present the Statue of Peace as a vivid place of resistance and encounter for marginalized communities in Berlin on the 30.09.2023. With a one-day program in the Tiny OyoUnity project including a participatory installation in the Tiny House, existing relationships of solidarity and self-organization will be made visible, and open the space for new encounters.
The participatory exhibition will gather the work of political initiatives of marginalized, racialized communities, especially Asian diasporic groups, in collaboration with local initiatives, (post-)migrant (self-)organizations and community members. Through an open call prior to the exhibition, Spicy Ginkgo reach out to respective communities to share archival material for the exhibition: photos, videos, and audio recordings of past events serve to document and highlight the significance of the Statue of Peace as a common reference point of solidarity in Berlin.
At the day of the exhibition visitors are encouraged to leave their own thoughts, feelings, comments, and draw new connections between the exhibition elements and participate in the creation of an archive-in-the-making.
The installation invites visitors to engage with the aura of the Statue of Peace with curiosity and imagination. Through creative writing exercises, the installation encourages visitors to – literally – put themselves in the statue's perspective: what does it witness? What does she long for? Who are they missing?
Tickets: Free admission!
Location: Close to Korea Verband @ Friedensstatue
Address: Bremer Str. 41, 10551 Berlin
Do you need a translation for the event? Are you in need of a companion that is also joining? Do you need a sign language interpreter? Or are you joining with a wheelchair?

Spicy Ginkgo Collective are Quang (no pronouns), Meilan (she/her), and Thủy-Tiên (no pronouns). They all engage in art and are involved in community organizing. In their collective work, they aim to co-create different spaces where the focus shifts depending on the context, whether it's empowerment, art, and/or community. Sustainable relationship-building is crucial to them, and they prefer to work in a process-oriented manner rather than being solely output-oriented because they are not interested in becoming a production machine. With that being said, they have no interest in capitalist self-exploitation, elitist art attitudes, or tokenization!
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.
