The worldwide debates and protests on how to deal with colonial and racist monuments also influence the debate on Hamburg's Bismarck Monument in the Alter Elbpark. The criticism of the ongoing renovation of the monument formulated by civil society initiatives has highlighted the need for a re-contextualisation of the widely visible statue, whose setting, use and meaning show complex interwoven references to colonialism, National Socialism, discrimination and questions of social justice.

Workshops in order to recontextualise Bismarck

The Hamburg Ministry of Culture and Media has therefore initiated a participation process in which a new contextualisation of the monument is to be implemented on the basis of an artistic-didactic competition. The results of the four planned workshops will lead to the tendering of the competition task. The results of the four planned workshops will lead to the tendering of the competition task.
