Oyoun conceives, develops and implements artistic-cultural projects through decolonial, queer*feminist and migrant perspectives
Oyoun creates space for critical discussion, reflective experimentation and radical solidarity.
Thanks to its diverse cultural offerings, Oyoun is a hub for the production of culture and knowledge. The non-profit cultural centre sees itself as an inter- and anti-disciplinary platform for newly emerging approaches between and from the fields of fine arts, performance art, theatre, literature, dance, music, new media, socio-culture, education and much more.
At the beginning of 2020, the non-profit Kultur NeuDenken UG took over the 3500 m² cultural institution at Lucy-Lameck-Str 32, Berlin Neukölln.
Oyoun carries out socio-cultural and artistic projects that highlight neurodiverse and class-critical perspectives throughout Berlin and internationally, with the aim of creating an intersectional platform for excellent diasporic, migrant and international art and culture, a place for an artistic dialogue about locally, nationally and internationally relevant topics.
For Oyoun, intersectionality is a crucial guiding principle and a lived practice that can be found in the artistic and socio-cultural program. In this program, different realities of life and their artistic and cultural forms of expression are empowered and made visible.
Who is working on the Fellowship of Questions initiative?
Dami Choi is a Korean curator living in Berlin, currently working at Oyoun, an intersectional hub for art and culture located in Berlin-Neukölln. She studied aesthetics (art philosophy) and political philosophy which laid ground for her interest and profession in contemporary art and decolonialism.
She is nowadays engaged in questions like: "How should I keep a good balance between work and self-care, as a female cultural worker of color?" "What are the artistic things that I used to do as a child so naturally but then were discontinued at some point?"
