The extent to which global power structures influence our day-to-day activities and life within a community is made even more clearly apparent by crisis situations. What narrative do we apply with reference to the inequality between North and South? What do visions of a future decolonised internet look like? In what way does structural racism determine our present?
Using artistic and discursive projects initiated and supported by the Goethe-Institut in recent years as a starting point, the Latitude festival created a space for perspectives for people and perspectives of international culture, science, and politics; reflecting on asymmetries and power relations that have continued since the colonial era.
From June 4the until 6the, the digital Latitude festival presented a programme of artistic contributions and debates, exploring the question of how colonial structures impact the present and how we can overcome them. Most contributions were recorded, you can find them in the Media collection.
