We built the Kilimanjaro!
taz.talk: Nathalie Bikoro
"Our art objects have civil rights in places where for us the access is denied." Musée du Quai Branly Animata Traoré
Linguist Wilhelm Doegen’s 1920’s project Museum of World Of Cultures collected material by recording war prisoners in colonial camps but in particular excluded women from the production of his history. Mound debris over the city from WWII have been the spaces for cinema and the sciences burying the stories of many cultures. The Kilimanjaro was invented in Berlin with Herbert Selpin’s 1940 film "Carl Peters"; the Amazon River could be ridden by boat on Wannsee lake in Selpin’s 1934 film "Die Reiter von Deutsch-Ostafrika". How do these images leave memories in today’s urban culture? What are the 21st century monuments the city wants to make visible and why do so many remain invisible? Can we re-consider the way we produce histories by creating our own mountains?
This talk will take place in English.
