Tayla Myree – Reclaiming Representations am 3. Mai

Tayla Myree – Reclaiming Representations am 3. Mai: As part of the exhibition „fruit, seeds“, Tayla Myree invites you to a tour of „In Your Archives“. Followed by a workshop on May 3 at 6 p.m. in the Volkskundemuseum Wien, Room 8. The event is open to BPOC (Black and People of Color).

Reclaiming Representations invites Black and People of Color to reimigine caricatured representations in Austria and greater Europe  – via a small tour of the work In Your Archives. The tour is followed by a discussion and workshop on how to reimagine representations  – not only in material culture but generally in the Austrian/European context.

Total time for the event should be 2 hours.

The goals of the workshops are to build community with people of color in the Vienna, to imagine how these representations have been challenged and how this work can be continued.


Trigger Warning
This work shows racist depictions of Black people found in Austrian flea markets, antique stores, and thrift stores.
