To Those Who Follow in Our Wake is an activation of Per-Oskar Leu’s art installation ‘An die Nachgeborenen’, based on Bertolt Brecht’s poem. This art research has the aim of making the experience of migration and exile more public. In collaboration with Per-Oskar Leu, this art encourages social integration through language. The poem has been translated for this occasion in collaboration with the Language Cafe and Fahyma Alnablsi into different languages spoken in Tensta and is performed by local residents in their respective mother tongues: Samir Latif Hafiz in Arabic, Asha Mohamed in Somali, Gülgün Ok in Turkish and Nawroz Zakholy in Swedish.
This project is realised for the curatorial programme CuratorLab at Konstfack University of Arts, Craft and Design in Stockholm in collaboration with Malmö Konstmuseum and Tensta Konsthall for the exhibition ‘Migration: Traces of an Art Collection’.
