Initiative Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit is a migrant based association, which arose from the need of self-organization in 2013 (cofounded by Marina Naprushkina) long before the so-called “refugee crisis” began to dominate public discourse. The focus here is on reciprocity, not on the subordination of one side to the other. Getting to know one another, exchanging knowledge, experiences, and ideas in personal encounters, working together and using artistic methods and skills, meeting in the neighborhood on a regular basis—all this is the way to empower oneself, resist discrimination and marginalisation, and formulate an agenda with the help of artistic knowledge.
