Lecture Performance

in the context of SPEAKING BACK

Lecture Performance with Minna Henriksson
Saturday, 3 June 2023, 4 pm
Kunsthaus Hamburg

Curator Katja Schroeder guides through the exhibition at 3 pm. 
Free admission.

The artist Minna Henriksson guides you through the history of scientific racism practiced by anatomists and race biologists in the Nordic countries, and the relations to German colleagues, institutions and networks. A special focus of the lecture will be how the science influenced various other disciplines, among them geography, visual art and photography.

Minna Henriksson (b. 1976, Oulu, Finland) is a visual artist working with a disparate range of tools including text, drawing, painting and linocut. She studied art in Brighton, Helsinki and Malmö. Henriksson’s work relates to leftist, anti-racist and feminist struggles, and aim at highlighting positions of power and oppression. The works are based on research and often draw from real historical events. In 2017 Henriksson was awarded with the Anni and Heinrich Sussmann Award of artistic work committed to the ideal of democracy and antifascism.

The event is held in English.
