Abstract: Racism and Whiteness is Irrelevant to us!?
A Look at Cultural Education from the Perspective
of Critical Whiteness Theory
Racism underlies the experiences and perspectives of ›white‹ people in our society, al-
though generally speaking, the significance of whiteness is not perceived, nor mentioned
by, white people. The perspective of critical whiteness, which was developed by people
of color in opposition to racism, focuses on the otherwise undefined white subject and
on white-dominated structures. This paper offers an introduction to the views of critical
of negotiation for questions affecting society as a whole?
• How can individuals working in cultural education and outreach avoid redu-
cing people to their status as refugees, and how do they nevertheless manage
to make refugees and their stories visible?
• How should cultural work with refugees be structured? What are the perspec-
tives and methods which should guide the work?
• What is the relation between cultural education and anti-racism work?
• What role does cultural work and cultural education play in allowing refugees
to make use of their participation
Postkoloniale Einflüsse auf die Programmpolitik

There is a strange kind of tragic enigma associated with rac-
ism. No one, or almost no one, wishes to see themselves as
racists; still, racism persists, real and tenacious.

Der Stellenwert postkolonialer Einflüsse auf den europäischen und deutschspra-

of an immigrant society, and which works at redressing prejudice,
racism, difficulties in accessing basic healthcare, structural discrimination and tensions
and conflicts in intercultural encounters. This paper discusses and reflects upon the issue
of intercultural opening and its structural parameters, with a focus on the path toward cre-
ating interculturally open institutions, as well as addressing the challenges faced by social
services. The author continues by discussing strategies for intercultural opening in light of
the current developments in
of the future are required? Queer Base is a first step towards this, and this paper attempts to
bring together issues around listening and opening up spheres of possibilities with a critical
perspective of hegemonic structures. What can be spoken about and what is kept silent?
For example, that there are assaults on gay, lesbian and transgender people in Europe? Or
that racism and Islamophobia is rife within the LGBTIQ community? A first steps.

tural education ought to explore a more clearly formulated perspective that is free of rac-
ism. This would mean that it is not just minoritized groups that are addressed, but society at
large. One of the fundamental consequences of an anti-racist cultural education would be
the growth of initiatives, projects, networking forums and organizations which are directed
by the groups designated as ›problem groups‹ by the broader society. The paper ends with
four points which are designed to support the planning, implementation and reflexivity

fails to be foregrounded? With this text, the authors hope to spark a re-contextualization
of the topic of »flight and migration« and »refugees«, with which they aim to contribute to a
more holistic, long-term discourse which enacts a marked critique of power structures, yet
which eschews claims to totality.
