With financial support from

Förderverein zur Erforschung der Geschichte der Viadrina e.V.
Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION

The exhibition "GrenzGewalt und die Viadrina in den 1990er Jahren" (Border Violence and the Viadrina in the 1990s) deals with the racist and right-wing violence directly after the opening of the border between Poland and Germany.

As the result of a three-semester seminar at the Viadrina, the exhibition focuses on the violence and discrimination experienced by students and employees of the university in the 1990s. Further, it sheds light on the reactions within the institution and therefore also on the university’s role in the city.

The exhibition "Border Violence and the Viadrina in the 1990s" was organized by Ronja Kroll, Georg Hartmann and Maria Klessmann from Viadrina Frankfurt/Oder and Florian Grundmüller from Georg-August University Göttingen with the support of Skadi Pest (EUV) and Jessica Wolf (EUV).

We are pleased to be able to show the exhibition as part of the supporting program of the conference "Contesting 21st Century B/Orders.




The poster exhibition shows current research projects of the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTIONS.
The exhibition will be shown during coffee breaks and lunch at the VIP-room of the canteen, Gräfin Dönhoff Building (GD), Europaplatz 1.
