Conference: Love and Ethnology

The Colonial Dialectic of Sensitivity (after Hubert Fichte)

In his writing and life, Hubert Fichte strove for a specific kind of openness. What bodies, institutions and narratives enable this opening? International authors, artists and curators discuss export and appropriation, trance and knowledge, ethnology and aesthetic colonialism, accompanied by Fichte and Mau’s photo films such as Ein Tag aus dem Leben eines unständigen Hafenarbeiters (1966) and Zwei mal 45 Bilder/Sätze über Agadir (1971).
