More than 10 years have passed since the death of the Palestinian literary theorist Edward Said, one of the founders of postcolonial studies, and there is still a long way to go before Europe is able to look at the non-Western world without donning its colonial glasses. Looking at art currently produced on the African continent, how can one avoid falling into the trap of exoticism? Despite a growing profusion of exhibitions of African art at European shows and galleries, this question remains unanswered. For this debate, HAU Hebbel am Ufer has invited the curator N’Goné Fall, the journalist Ntone Edjabe and the choreographer Faustin Linyekula to talk about their artistic practice and experiences when working with European partners. The moderator is Anne Haeming.
