(POST)COLONIAL TRACES IN COLOGNE’S SÜDSTADT – A Critical Neighbourhood Tour
FILMFORUM IM MUSEUM LUDWIG
In our guided tour of Cologne’s Südstadt, we show that German colonialism happened on our doorstep and has had a lasting legacy on the neighbourhood. We introduce key players from colonised societies, recount stories of anti-colonial resistance and of white citizens perpetuating the concept of colonialism. Colonial thinking influenced all aspects of communal life, such as everyday routines, culture, science or the economy.
We apply a feminist perspective to gender relationships prevalent at the time and critically reflect on continuing racism from the 19th century to the present day.
And we ask how colonialism actually affects us.’
