«Welcome to the dust of the archives, to the mustiness of dominant historiography. As a festival, we ask ourselves this year: Who writes history and why? How can collective memory be irritated? Doing so, which relationships can film, research and art form? And: where do the chickens come from who want to rearrange Luhmann’s card index? We do not remember anymore. Or in ways that are too different, too vague, too fragmented. GEGENkino #6 challenges thinking and speaking about memory and archives. With films and discussions about personal references and feisty action. Besides, with an exhibition in the historical ballroom of Schaubühne Lindenfels, where a bustle will take place this time.»
