DECOLONISE! – THE CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE OF A COMPLEX TRANSFORMATION

Friday, 13 October 2017, 4.30 – 5.30 pm
 
Panel discussion (German / English)

The active movements of decolonisation persistently cause new rifts in the foundations of African and European societies. As well as philosophical reflection, it is increasingly the case that the cultural way is being paved for a radical new order. What is the role of cultural exchange between Africa and Europe in this socio-political process? How is this interaction changing?
