About the Event

Sophia Hirsch

On October 26th, 2014, the Warsaw Uprising Museum, the Polish Institute in Berlin and Urban Spree invite you to a panel discussion about the legacy and meaning of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising on Street Art, Pop Culture, and on the younger european generations.

This event will unfold with a panel discussion moderated by Martin Conrads (UdK) with the presence of: Jan Ołdakowski Director of the Warsaw Uprising Museum Klaus Theweleit Critic, Literature Professor, and Writer Dr. Iwona Kurz Head of the Audiovisual and Film Section at the Institute for Polish Culture of the Warsaw University

On the days preceding the discussion, 2 street artists will paint the Urban Spree Artist Wall facing Warschauer Str. with a collaborative mural in connexion with the Warsaw Uprising. Urban Spree curates this section of the event and invited with the support of the Polish Institute Magda Drobczyk (Drobczyk+Kopaniszyn), street and multimedia artist from Katowice, and Sophia Hirsch from Berlin to paint our 12 x 7 m wall.

Der Warschauer Abstand in der Popkultur” event will mark the conclusion of the exhibition “Warsaw Uprising of 1944” at Berlin’s Topographie des Terrors. The exhibition presents the history of Warsaw after 1918. Special emphasis is placed on the 63 days of the Warsaw Uprising. The end of the exhibition shows pictures of Warsaw in the years after it was subjected to totalitarianism. The exhibition is shown at the site where from 1933 to 1945 the central offices of Heinrich Himmler’s SS state had been located. It was here that the fate of Warsaw and its residents was sealed: Hitler ordered the city to be completely destroyed after the start of the uprising. Himmler and the high-level SS leaders acting on his instructions were mostly responsible for this. They were also responsible for the ruthless military suppression of the uprising by the SS and police in cooperation with the Wehrmacht, as well as for the terror inflicted on Warsaw’s civilian population, which cost tens of thousands of lives.

Im Dokumentationszentrum Topographie des Terrors ist bis zum 26. Oktober die Ausstellung „Warschauer Aufstand 1944” zu sehen.

Der Warschauer Aufstand ist seit Jahrzehnten Gegenstand zahlreicher Debatten und beschäftigt nicht nur Historiker. Der dramatische Freiheitskampf ist auch 70 Jahre nach seinem Scheitern tief im Bewusstsein der Warschauer verankert. Junge Generationen spüren die Präsenz der Ereignisse des Jahres 1944 und beteiligen sich rege an allen Formen des Gedenkens. Mittlerweile fand der Warschauer Aufstand Eingang in die Popkultur und inspirierte zahlreiche Künstler und Kulturschaffende zur kreativen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema. Dabei ist die Graffitikunst eine der sichtbarsten Formen des künstlerischen Umgangs mit Geschichte und zeigt anschaulich die Haltung der jungen Generation.

Parallel zur Podiumsdiskussion, bei der Experten der Frage nachgehen, inwiefern junge Künstlergenerationen das Geschichtsbild zu prägen vermö-gen, werden die polnischen und deutschen Graffitikünstler Drobczyk+Kopaniszyn, Multimedia Design Studio und Sophia Hirsch gemeinsam ein Wandbild als thematischen Hintergrund zur Diskussion gestalten.

Begrüßung:

Jan Ołdakowski (Direktor des Museums des Warschauer Aufstands) Podiumsdiskussion mit: Klaus Theweleit (Literaturwissenschaftler, Kulturtheoretiker und Schriftsteller) Dr. Iwona Kurz (Leiterin der Abteilung Film und Audiovisualität am Institut für Polnische Kultur der Warschauer Universität) Moderation: Martin Conrads (UdK)
