The exhibition Offener Prozess disentangles the complicated backdrop that paved the way for the serial murders committed by the far-right terror group NSU between 2000 and 2006. Challenging the official and popular narrative that insists on defining the atrocities as isolated cases of ideological fanaticism, the project highlights various layers of the institutional racism that has openly or latently infused into the operation of state apparatuses and daily life. In contrast to the paralysing ascription of victimhood to the ones who lost their lives, several works in the Offener Prozess exhibition give voice to their relatives and communities, who reject being a part of the silencing consensus imposed upon them.
