Abstract in another language

When it comes to the attention colonial history receives in the cultural field, the situation in Germany differs from that in most of the African countries with whom Germany shares a colonial history. The body of cultural productions that make colonial history a topic is unmanageable, due to the size, complexity and diversity of the German cultural scene. To list an actual number of productions related to the topic of colonialism developed by visual artists, writers, performers, photographers, film makers, theatre directors or curators within the last ten years is therefore impossible, and it would be presumptuous to claim one knows them all. The following compilation presenting 42 cultural productions can therefore only be a subjective sample of works instead of a complete survey. Nonetheless, it will allow for an overview of the topic.
