It seems as if pop culture repeatedly claims that it is capable of overcoming racist power structures. This colour-blindness is addressed with a childish naivety and PLAYBLACK proves that exactly the opposite is true. Hijacking the format of the German TV program Mini Playblack Show, Joana Tischkau uses it to show that the lived experience of whiteness is not universal. PLAYBLACK exposes the ambivalent potential of the copy: In what way can they become an expression of solidarity, but also drift into being caricatures? The white German desire for Black embodiment is exposed when we lose ourselves in the recesses, memories and projections of African American and Afro-German cultural productions.



Unterstützt durch das NATIONALE PERFORMANCE NETZ Gastspielförderung Tanz, gefördert von der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien, sowie den Kultur- und Kunstministerien der Länder.
