They are faced with forms of everyday racism, for example in the fact that based on their surname, they have less opportunities than others to find an apartment, 1 | See https://www.journal21.ch/because-its-2015 (the date of access for all web sites is 13

museums, based on her practice at the Horniman Museum in London. The collaboration with the Caribbean Women Writers Alliance (CWWA) at the Horniman Museum in the 1990s offers an early example.21 Under the title re-writing the museum and working with both young and established writers, the workshops conducted in this project focused not only the collection’s objects, but also on the institution and on the museum’s existing displays and the racism and exoticism to be observed in them.

For all this, the project is not one that politically challenges collective memory of Austria’s past, nor does Nasan Tur – unfortunately – address the topics of xeno- phobia and racism directly.

Liverpool thbecame the capital of transatlantic slavery in the 18 century. We shall also examine contemporary issues of racism and diversity, which have their roots in the slave trade. Our biggest scheme of all is to build an entirely new struc- ture right in the centre of Liverpool’s world-class waterfront, to be opened as the Museum of Liverpool as the centrepiece of the city’s 2008 projects.

Their political and peda- gogical intentions are clear: the projects aim to contribute to the “prevention of racism” and show “why integration is demanding yet also enriching”21. Other exhibitions have brought topics to the fore that are considered especially relevant for a
