On 10th of September 2023, the Alexander House hosted the Open Monument Day. With Dialogue Perspectives. Discussing Religions and Worldviews, we were on site to provide insights into our work and methods of impact-oriented interreligious-worldview dialogue.
In high summer temperatures, Maximiliane Linde, deputy chairperson of DialoguePerspectives e.V., and Kira Wisniewski, project manager of DialoguePerspectives, talked with interested people from various contexts, presented our programme contents and introduced exemplary methods such as the Power Flower, which encourages reflection on privileges and discrimination structures and thus contributes to inclusive exchange and understanding.
How places also shape these encounter concepts is shown by the adjacent BRAVE SPACE, a temporary learning and encounter space in the garden of the Alexander Haus, developed by architect Jan Bodenstein and opened in 2021 on the occasion of the CPPD event “Erinnern in Relation”.
We thank the Alexander Haus for the opportunity to present our work in the context of the Open Monument Day. Thus, the Alexander Haus once again became a place of remembrance, learning and discourse for encounters. For several years now, the Alexander House has regularly hosted dialogue projects, events and workshops with European participants of DialoguePerspectives.
˝DialoguePerspectives is a great programme not only because of all the things you are going to learn during the seminars, not only because of the cool people you are going to meet but also because of the un-learning process that you will go through, getting rid of all the prejudices that you are not even aware of having.
