Jens Stickel

Jens Stickel is a painter. His painting is concrete insofar that there is no need of subjects from the outside world to act as references, the painting can concentrate on the color and its treatment. It is abstract where it explicitely reverts to subjects from the outside to be translated into painting.

Didem Yazıcı

Focusing on the topics of social justice, racist violence and border politics, For Each Of You brings three filmic works together: The Second Attack (2018) by Mala Reinhardt, Purple Sea (2020) by Amel Alzakout and Khaled Abdulwahed and Set Off  (2019) by Mustafa Emin Büyükcoşkun. As a film, intervention and discussion programme, specifically developed for Mannheim-based artist-run art space Maquis Mami Wata, the programme will take place in cycles. Each cycle will be dedicated to each artistic position. The concept is inspired by the poem ‘For Each Of You’ (1968) written by Audre Lorde (1934-1992) who described herself as „Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,“ who dedicated her life and and her creative work to confronting social injustices.
