Curricula and textbooks reveal social contexts that include remnants from colonial times. These can find expression in structural racism that many students experience in their everyday lives - in the schoolyard, in the numerous interactions during class - and also in what is not shown, said, and communicated. The authors of this anthology from the fields of art, education, and science examine the ways in which colonial continuities are reflected discursively and in the politics of images and language, with the aim of countering them with alternative images and strengthening new ways of seeing.
At the book launch the editors will take this great opportunity to give an insight into the publication and exchange ideas with the invited authors.
The discussion will be held in English with Aïcha Diallo, Annika Niemann, Miriam Shabafrouz (Editorial Direction) and Alya Sebti (Director of ifa Gallery Berlin), Thiago de Paula Souza, Juliana dos Santos and Aram Ziai (contributors).
This publication accompanies the research and exhibition project Untie to Tie – On Colonial Legacies and Contemporary Societies, realized by the ifa Gallery Berlin, in cooperation with the German Federal Agency for Civic Education/bpb.
