Maike Gunsilius’ second research project focused on the transgenerational relation between girls and women as citizens. In the The School of Girls II – A Citizens’ Encounter their acting together as citizens was the topic of research. Five girls met five women. In one-on-one constellations, one girl and one woman spent a day together in their city – Hamburg. They were given performative instructions, some materials and 200 euros. With these means, each team investigated how to act together in public and if and how this acting could become a practice of citizenship. In the evening, they presented the results of their research in the format of a lecture performance for a public at FUNDUS THEATER/Theatre of Research.
