BISMARCK-DEKOLONIAL als LIVE=FORUM at Alten Elbpark, St. Pauli

Otto von Bismarck is one of the key figures in the colonization of Africa. And the huge Bismarck statue in the middle of Hamburg will be restored from 2020 to 2022 at a cost of around nine million euros. Thus it is currently at the center of the debate about how we shall deal with German colonial history as a society.

With BISMARCK DEKOLONIAL, a change of perspective is now stimulated: The Mexican-German choreographer and curator Yolanda Gutirrez, together with artists from Tanzania, Namibia, Cameroon, Togo and Rwanda, is focusing on artistic narratives of formerly colonized peoples. Since April, they have commonly been workin on collective, decolonizing artistic countervoices in the form of a lab. The results will be presented in August in the form of video mappings on the statue itself and live performances around its pedestal.
