Beyond the Global Colour Line

“The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line.”

W.E.B. Du Bois, The Souls of Black Folk

We start the year 2018 on 19th and 20th January with an exciting conference under the title: “A future beyond the global color line? African_diasporic perspectives on global inequalities” and invite you to exchange ideas with our speakers on two days. Is the “color line” of the 20th century overcome? The EU’s imperialist interventions and systematic neo-colonial exploitations brings this statement by W.E.B. Du Bois back to the discourse – In-visions of African-diasporic activists we intend to examine strategies on challanging the global color line. The first conference day of “Re-Imagining The Future”: African_diasporic Perspectives on Art, Culture and Literature" took place on the 19th of January 2018, creating a specific space for discussion on African_diasporic concepts of the future in culture, art and literature.

The program will include panel discussions, lectures, readings, shortfilms and an exhibition.
