Open Discussion: Artist-in-Residence Yoshinori Niwa in a discussion with Markus Wurzer (University of Graz), Monika Sommer (House of Austrian History) und Marcello Farabegoli (Curator "Japan Unlimited"), hosted by Judith Brandner (ORF)

"Worried about your Nazi grandfather's hat in the attic? 
Unsure what to do about it? Too ashamed to sell it, too emotional to burn it? I have a solution! Come with all relics of NSDAP, SS, SA, NSKK, NSFK - uniforms, hats, flags, medals, ornaments, photographs, posters, books, or any other item with swastikas or Nazi emblems to frei_raum Q21 exhibition space / MuseumsQuartier Wien and join our open discussion. We share your story behind it and decide whether to destroy, donate, or even keep it privately.
The discussion takes place on 19 November 2019 at 18:30 in the frei_raum Q21 exhibition space / MuseumsQuartier Wien. Dial 0660 652 6326 for help, we'll visit you and take measures for all relics, if you can’t participate personally in the discussion!"
-Yoshinori Niwa
