Why was there a beauty salon at the site of the Berlin Africa Conference until 2020? How did Deutsche Bank artistically depict its involvement in the genocide of the Ovaherero and Nama? Since when has the colonial racist image of people of African descent willing to serve been cultivated in Berlin? Where was the world's largest collection of stolen ancestral/human bones from around the world located? How did colonial migrants from Cameroon and East Africa look back on 35 years of German colonial rule in 1919?
The Dekoloniale Unexpected Lessons Walk leads through Berlin's old and new government quarter, from where European and German colonialism received important impulses. Activists and experts from Namibia, Tanzania, the USA and Germany living in Berlin talk about inconceivable colonial arrogance, the will to exterminate, colonial racist traditions, unscrupulous collecting mania and anti-colonial resistance at prominent but hardly noticed places.
