Reclaiming African Identities
Cameroonian cartoonist Japhet Miagotar talks about North-South relations, and describes his work as a reflection of social behavior, shaped by personal history, ideologies, studies, and African statuary.
Une Nouvelle Vie
Drawing from magical realism as well as afrofuturism, Japhet Miagotar’s comic strip comments on society, from a day in the life of the narrator’s family, to the yellow vests populist political movement in France.
La Rivière sans Fin
In this story, young people from a Congolese town fall prey to dream vendors in search of a better life. They follow a quest, which leads them to the depths of rivers in search of diamonds and gold.
By weaving together historical events and imagined texts, »Lebensentwürfe« questions the stories of West African women and their descendants, so as to tell it anew.
Nigerian writer Sada Malumfashi relates an encounter with his friends, while hunting a key in Berlin's night, roaming trough the city, learning Berlin, while in that moment shaping the city with a black perspective.
Entanglements in Transnational Memory Politics
On his way from Germany to Kenya, Eric Otieno passed by Bagamoyo, in Tanzania, where he found traces of German colonialism. A reflection on the difficult, and distorted memory politics, which often repeat national narratives of founders, fathers, and flags.
Can one be thirsty in the sea? Can there be distance if we get close? Can music be silent? A poem that reflects on contradictions, and realities existing next to each other.
