What does staging the post-colonial entail – in the arts, in institutions, in people’s heads? The assembled black knowledge of this year’s festival comes together to discuss mimicry as an emancipatory instrument, alternative strategies of appropriation, and the cultural industry and its structural racisms in a shared lab and a guided tour through the city.

In English * With Azadeh Sharifi, Nadine Siegert, Sahar Rahimi, Selina Thompson, Simone Dede Ayivi, Nelisiwe Xaba, Doung Jahangeer, DJ Zhao, Harold Offeh, Segun Adefila, Oluwaseun Awobajo, Julian Warner, Oliver Zahn, Martin Baasch, Elisa Liepsch.
