The "Other Monuments" project is an interactive walking route created with the contribution of marginalized groups and individuals in the Marzahn district. The event will start with group tours on 28-29 January and the route will be experienced for 1 month in the Berlin city.
Other Monuments project offers interactive walking routes where the city memory and history are brought to light. The routes spread throughout the Marzhan/Mitte region are based on historical stories as well as the personal memories of the disabled, displaced, exiled and immigrant people living in the neighbourhood. The project, which creates "personal monuments" by bringing the city memories of immigrants into public spaces, archives and protects the valuable stories of how the city and the region is experienced by marginalised individuals. The content and location of these memories determines the direction of the walking path.
Emphasizing belonging and renewing the immigrant's bond with the city by creating a personal monument to everyone, the project aims to create an archive of memories. Offering the opportunity to experience the Marzahn-Mitte through the eyes of the unprivileged individuals living in the region, the project provides a temporary monument in the city for not only to historical figures, but also to everyone who sees Berlin as their home.
