The exhibition "Through the Archive" focuses on formats of participatory art. As part of the exhibition, the artist and primary school teacher Juan Camilo Alfonso will present his project "Kartogramm" which was made in 2020/21 in collaboration with young residents from the refugee accommodation at Maxie-Wander-Strasse 78 on the Berlin-Hellersdorf estate.

"Through the Archive" shows the joint actions, demands and ideas that residents and artists have contributed to the estate during seven years of station urbaner kulturen/nGbK Hellersdorf. Juan Camilo Alfonso's project gives a voice to young people’s perspectives – specifically to the generation most affected by current council plans for a new school campus on the green land they use named "Place Internationale" and on the site of the refugee accommodation.

During his artist talk, Juan Camilo Alfonso will present the "Kartogramm project" as well as his work as an elementary school teacher in Bernau. From his perspective as a teacher, he will talk about the role of art in schools. He will also discuss the question why art that is made in schools is so seldom shown to a wider audience in art exhibitions. A risoprint publication documenting the project will be available free of charge in a limited edition at the talk. It presents the project in detail and visualizes it with a poster format.

Juan Camilo Alfonso is a Colombian artist and teacher of graphics and painting who has been working in public space since 2009. He has been living in Berlin since 2016. His artistic practice evolved from street art to performance and then later to site-specific participatory projects. Based on the understanding that shared historical memories can rebuild broken social fabrics, his projects call for social interaction to support reconciliation processes in different contexts. In 2019, he graduated with honors from the Master's program Art in Context at the University of the Arts (UdK) Berlin. Since 2020, he has been teachering in Bernau and been part of the project group station urbaner kulturen.
