Special Edition Stamp on occasion of the Bandung Conference, 1955

“Geographies of Collaboration” reflects the framework conditions of the new political order following the “catastrophe of civilization” that was World War Two.

Program: THU 03.10. | FRI 04.10. | SAT 05.10.2013

The image of the twentieth century is dominated by the historico-philosophically charged, bipolar confrontation between liberal universalism and socialist internationalism. The greater and ongoing challenge to the chronicling of history, however, is the revision of the modern era against the background of colonial history and the critique of what the European historical narrative has included and excluded. The first day of “Geographies of Collaboration” examines the fundamental role of Africa in the European construction of universal history, as well as the continuities at the nexus of colonial rule and fascism.
