«Sich Verze­ich­nen» – with and through dif­fer­ences

Build­ing re­la­tions and leav­ing rests in car­togra­phies

What enables reflective processes, that can help to view one’s own thoughts and actions in their conditioning frameworks and to critically review them? The arts-based method «Sich verzeichnen» (to register/to make an error drawing)for reflexion draws on specific characteristics of cartography to draw attention to processes of «making meaning». In the context of working through pedagogical contradictions in migration society, the method allows to problematize imaginations of difference in their function of ascribing and fixing identities. The paper shares thoughts and observations from the development of the method, and practice.
