Why should we care about colonialism today? What do (post-)colonial structures have to do with our everyday-life? What does decolonisation mean today?
Our present socio-economical behavior, our decisions of consumption and our perceptions of reality are – consciously or not – tied to the many stories of ’New World’ encounters dating back to the era of colonialism. Imaginations of economic wealth, knowledge-production, and material culture blend colonial past into postcolonial present. Colonialism and its effects are also inscribed into the cityscape of Munich – how do we deal with the traces of colonial past in our city?
Our program seeks to challenge eurocentric perspectives and to shed light on the underlying structures of oppression, exploitation and racism. We want to broaden our view for the global entanglements of colonialism and zoom in to the local vestiges in Munich.

Due to the current situation the Workshop might take place online via zoom. The tour starts afterwards at „Alter Südfriedhof“.
We look forward to see you!
