Geteilte Welten

Geteilte Welten

Geteilte Welten is an audiowalk, a sonic intervention into Berlin Tiergarten’s memory landscapes and an artistic research project by Miriam Schickler.

In German the word “geteilt” means both divided and shared. Geteilte Welten are thus worlds that are simultaneously shared and divided; notwithstanding their segregation through disciplinary categorisation, codification and fragmentation which maintain systemic domination, these worlds continue to intersect with each other.

The audiovisual work “interspaces” constitutes a prelude to the audiowalk.

Reading the different Holocaust memorials as well as other public sites in Berlin Tiergarten through one another for their various entanglements. By being attentive to what gets excluded as well as what comes to matter, Geteilte Welten strives to become more attuned to how differences are created in the world, and what particular effects they have on subjects, their lives and bodies today.

Using sound as a main medium and material provides a way to relate to what lies beyond what is visible, to the power that structures memory culture. By oscillating across multiple modes of knowing and sensing Geteilte Welten hopes to formulate possibilities of remembering otherwise and across communities.
