Here, you can read about the goals we strive to accomplish.
The DOMiD Mission
DOMiD collects and preserves testimonials of and related to migration history and society. Included in this are especially undocumented knowledge and individuals' experiences. One of the primary goals of DOMiD is to make marginalised positions (more) visible, through various educational tools , to elicit changes in perspective.
Through this work, DOMiD contributes to the dissolution of a homogenous (re-)telling of Germany's history. We call for and promote a narrative that is transnational, multi-perspective, and that views plurality as a foundational element of the narrative.
DOMiD confronts and questions societal developments and its own role therein openly and critically. With this in mind, our own internal structures receive particular consideration. In this way we support the participation of everyone and demand equal rights for all.
DOMiD pushes for interconnection and empowerment, in order to strengthen solidarity in society.
DOMiD is currently working to establish a central place, a museum, in which migration can be handled in a democratic way. In doing so, migration is sustainably recognised as an intrinsic component of society, and it is made accessible for all, for the whole society of the many. Such a place underscores the significance that migration has had in the past, has now, and will continue to have in the future. With its work in this arena, DOMiD is taking on a leading role, both as a museum as well as on a structural level.
The DOMiD Vision
DOMiD's vision is one of a solidary, anti-racist society of the many with equal rights for all, which recognises migration as a formative power.
DOMiD ist Teil von "Die Vielen"
DOMiD is a co-signer of the NRW declaration of the association "Die Vielen / The Many". With this decision, we are following our Mission & Vision in the sense of a social responsibility. The many - under this name, actors from the arts and culture have come together since its founding in 2017 in order to show an attitude together.
Attitude to the increasing right-wing populist and extreme right-wing capture and instrumentalization of art and cultural institutions. The aim is to work together for an equal and open society.
