Simone Dede Ayivi sets out on an expedition through colonial history: Berlin – Lomé – Hanover, directly into the colonially influenced folds of her own family. Carrying a heavy inheritance, she visits the yesterday in the cities of today. She travels to the site of former anthropological exhibitions and colonial monuments and gives accounts of resistance and visions. A multi-media travelogue from a black perspective.

Version française

Simone Dede Ayivi explore le lourd patrimoine de l’histoire coloniale qui a marqué sa propre famille. En se rendant dans les villes d’aujourd’hui sur les traces de l’histoire d’hier, et accompagné par des voix d’activistes allemands noirs, elle offre un récit de voyage multimédia et témoigne de résistances et de visions. Les travaux Simone Dede Ayivi sondent les clichés, jouent avec les perceptions visuelles habituelles en interrogeant les stéréotypes, en les disséquant et en les plaçant dans de nouveaux contextes. En allemand.
