Mind The Gap! Narratives and Questions from LGBTIQA+ Migrants

The second exhibition of DOMiDLabs opens!

The exhibition Mind The Gap! Narratives and Questions from LGBTIQA+ Migrants is the result of Lab #02. People with experience in and with LGBTIQA+ community – with and without migration history – came together and formed a curatorial collective. Together with the DOMiD project team, they explored the questions of how the future migration museum of DOMiD can deal with gaps in terms of content and design in its collection and permanent exhibition and how then, for instance, LGBTIQA+ stories from within the migration society can be told.

The results of their joint work will be presented from 31.03.– 04.05.2023 in the exhibition Mind The Gap! Narratives and Questions of LGBTIQA+ Migrants.

The vernissage will take place on 31.03.2023, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in the Galerie and Saal of the Kulturbunker Köln-Mülheim, free entry. Followed by the party Fill The Gap! from 9:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m. with music by Meryem Erkuş (GOLD+BETON ) and Nikity (E.P.I.Q.), free entry.

The Lab team has agreed on using the term LGBTIQA+ as an abbreviation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual and + for further diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. The German translation of the term is LSBTIQA+, standing for: Lesben, Schwule, Bisexuelle, trans* Personen, inter Personen, queere Personen, asexuelle Personen and + for further sexual and gender identities.

Against a neon yellow background is an illustration of a white star. Above it in black capital letters is written "MIND THE GAP!". The logo of Lab #02 can be seen at the top right. At the bottom right it says "Narratives and Questions from LGBTIQA+ Migrants".
