Since 2016, we have been working on various projects related to the NSU reappraisal. In the section below, you can find out more about these different projects.
In the Open Process (Ongoing Process) project, formats are being developed for addressing the issue of the NSU in Saxony. The goal is to present the complex topic in a way that is understandable and emotionally appealing to a broad audience. The project promotes social examination of the NSU case and sees itself as a contribution to the commemoration of the victims of the NSU.
In addition to the Open Process exhibition, which creates a space for remembering, researching and archiving, the project Open Process has already been working for years on the creation of a documentation center regarding the NSU complex in Saxony. Furthermore, we are developing formats to permanently integrate the topic into the school curriculum and we conduct educational trips and research projects.
Open Process connects existing reappraisal initiatives and incorporates their long-standing work. The project is a contribution to a living memory that raises awareness for the perspectives of those affected by right-wing violence and illuminates the continuities and conditions under which right-wing terrorist structures developed.
The project Open Process is developing formats for the creative and scientific reappraisal of the NSU in Saxony. In the project, two educational trips to Dortmund (2019) and Nuremberg (2020) were carried out and two research projects at the TU Chemnitz and TU Dresden were implemented in cooperation with artists. Furthermore, a Critical Walk in the former Fritz Heckert area was developed together with students and conducted numerous times, the handbook “On Learning and Unlearning – A Handbook of Methods for a Critical Reappraisal of Racism in the NSU Complex” was written and published and four films were produced with people who have been victims of right-wing violence in the 1990s. Last but not least, the exhibition Offener Prozess was conceived, produced and opened in 2021.
