I’m Not Who You Think I’m Not #1 – the Inaugural Event of the 10th Berlin Biennale public program

I’m Not Who You Think I’m Not

A little less than a year before the exhibition opening the curatorial team of the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art inaugurates the public program titled I’m not who you think I’m not.

The public program disavows assumed beingness and know-hows. Those assumptions are based on existing, constructed social frameworks and their associated speculations about particular subjectivities. Throughout the 10th Berlin Biennale until its conclusion in September 2018, the public program will create situations evading these assumptions.

The inaugural event of I’m not who you think I’m not on July 7, 2017, presents a variety of actions in collaboration with Each one Teach One (EOTO) e. V. It features EOTO members Phillip Khabo Koepsell and Victor Omere and the guests Donna Kukama, George Shire, and Jota Mombaça.

In performative gestures they reflect on the relationships between visionary fictions, unteaching, monstrosity, and humanity as ways of resisting and nourishing potentials of self-preservation.
