„CON.TXT“ BY LOW BROS
The Low Bros are a German Post Graffiti artist duo made up of brothers Christoph (1984) and Florin Schmidt (1982). With a background in street culture and an interest in contemporary developments, they explore a self-coined ‘Retro-Futuristic’ vibe. From their collective memory of the 80s and 90s, the Low Bros create a vantagepoint from which to reimagine the present future; a perception which refocuses the conflicts they embody in the modern age. The Low Bros live and work in Hamburg, Germany.
“..Influenced by the book 'Exit Racism' by Tupoka Ogette & Robin DiAngelo's 'White Fragility,' Low Bros have partnered with IDB (Institution for Non-Discriminatory Education), Josephine Apraku and Jule Bönkost for this exhibition. As an educational starting point, this exhibition aims to amplify and continue the conversation surrounding white privilege and asks questions of how it can be better utilized in institutions, as well as private & public spaces.”
By debunking the concept of privileges and problems, the context of this exhibition aims to engage whiteness as an ally to the BIPOC community. Join the conversation to learn, unlearn and relearn about this topic at Urban Spree, Berlin.
