To this day, the name “Hagenbeck” is associated with cages without bars, happy visitors, and the zoo‘s long tradition is referred to with great gesture. The period from 1874 to the 1930s is not looked at very closely – in this era, not only animals but also people were “exhibited” in his zoo in so-called ethnological shows, including Nubians, Inuit, Maasai or Singhalese. Activist campaigns like #notmyhero demand a transparent confrontation of zoo operators with the past. This form of racist exhibition practice are played back by the group La Fleur in dance and discurse. In this project, the group La Fleur around Franck Edmond Yao and Monika Gintersdorfer enters into new, temporary alliances with artists living and working in Hamburg, such
as the director Mable Preach. The performative interventions take place in public space and are announced at short notice via social media.
