At the End of ‘Dasein’: An Afro-German Voyage into the Future

Moderation: Tanja Scheffler from the association FoGG (Future of Ghana Germany e.V.)

Dr. Natasha A. Kelly will be joining us online during the event.

Whilst it has become common practice for US-American Afrofuturists to use projections of the future as a means of balancing the existing power structures, Black Germans are still busy re-examining local life and rewriting the narratives of past generations. Slowly coming to terms with their lost or stolen histories, they challenge the dominant representation and knowledge systems, but are very reluctant to leave the world as we know it behind. As Afrofuturist Reynaldo Anderson suggests, in this lecture I will show how a community whose past and present are negated can imagine a possible future beyond Eurocentrism.

Part of the event series OTHER EUROPE.
