The exhibition German Colonialism – fragments past and present deals with various aspects of German colonialism with more than 500 objects, including several interactive stations that have an inclusive approach.

“To most people colonialism is a distant era. One focus of the exhibition on German colonialism at the German Historical Museum is to show the relevance of colonialism for today’s world: structures of global inequality, politics of remembrance or racist stereotyping are all closely intertwined with the colonial experience, says Nathanael Kuck in the museum’s Education Section.

The Radi-Aid campaign is presented in the room that deals with the ongoing continuities of colonialism in Europe today, as an example for an initiative that tries to subvert prevalent stereotypes on Africa. This section of the exhibition also includes questions of reparations, politics of remembrance, economic structures but also colonial stereotyping.

“When we saw Radi-Aid’s Africa for Norway-video we thought it was a playful and accessible way to invert the often neo-colonial charity discourses of the West. That’s why we included it in the room on post-colonial present”, Kuck continues.

SAIH is honored to be part of the exhibition, which opened on October 14 and will be accessible until May 2017.

"The topic is relevant today in so many ways, which this exhibition manages to illustrate in a creative and intriguing way. The way we communicate about the global South and development issues, especially in fundraising, is crucial for how we understand the world. It’s good to see this recognized in the exhibition, inspiring us to continue our campaign and to explore how our work can develop further", says Inga Marie Nymo Riseth, President of SAIH.
