The exhibition “Offener Prozess” addresses the question of the NSU complex. Taking East German reality, particularly in Saxony, as its starting point, it tells a story of the NSU complex that begins with migration histories and continual right-wing and racist violence, along with the resistance shown against it. It uses a “living memory” approach, which brings marginalised perspectives into focus. It also examines structural and institutional racism. Artistic contributions by Harun Farocki, Hito Steyerl, belit sağ, Želimir Žilnik, Ulf Aminde, Forensic Architecture and others turn their attention to themes such as the living conditions of guest workers in Germany, migration stories, right-wing terrorist violence, as well as everyday racism. Activist initiatives remind us of those who are the victims of such violence, and speak out for the people who stand up against it. Here, listening is understood as a political practice, remembering as a process. This exhibition challenges us to take action.
