through the exhibition “Solidarize yourselves! Black resistance and global anti-colonialism in Berlin, 1919–1933"
Berlin after the First World War. The city is becoming a postcolonial metropolis in a largely colonial world: migrants from Germany's revoked colonies in Africa stay here. The city is a magnet for actors from Africa, Asia and the Arab world. Coming from various colonial contexts, they become politically active, form anti-colonial alliances, demand independence for their countries of origin, and resist racism.
What did this topography of anti-colonial Berlin look like? What freedom did it allow? Where did networks of international solidarity reach their limits? And what remained of anti-colonial Berlin? The tour through “Solidarize Yourself!” addresses these questions, highlights key events, personalities and places and traces the historical moments of anti-colonial Berlin.
