As we are all embedded in various institutions: how can we re/think them and our positions within? Are there ways to subvert them by using their tools in different ways? What are the potentials – and the stakes – of dropping out of institutions, of staying within, or “fucking up” (Valerie Solanas)? With From Where I Stand and Pact of Silence - How to break it?, we have brought together two feminist collaborations who are invested in these questions. In an ongoing collective process between Hamburg, Berlin, Bangalore, and Delhi, we are discussing our roles within existing institutions, new ways of relating, and the (im)possibilities of creating feminist institutions.

A first result of this dialogue is the public talk and 4-day workshop held at Leuphana University in April and June 2021. The public online talk will introduce the work of Pact of Silence - How to break it?, initiated by art historians and curators Arnika Ahldag (Delhi/Bangalore) and Meenakshi Thirukode (Instituting Otherwise, Delhi). Their 4-day online workshop at Leuphana University will, with a limited number of students, will dive deeper into ways of dealing with institutions and of instituting otherwise.
