Publication accompanying the exhibition

The book accompanying the exhibition, "Who Knows Tomorrow," is not a classical catalogue in the narrower sense. It is an interdisciplinary reader contextualizing and enriching the exhibition project from different perspectives. To this end, African and European authors have been invited to reflect on the historical and present-day diversity of the continent, the German-African relations, and the progressiveness of Africa that bears a promising future. The reader brings together essayistic texts and academic contributions, presenting rich, hitherto rarely published map material of Africa, mainly drawn from the stock of the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz. It also offers a forum for the artists, who designed the artists’ pages. The reader would like to address both an expert audience and a wider public, and is therefore conceived as a reading source for all those interested in Africa.

Authors: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi, Akin Adesokan, Anthony Asiwaju, Wolfgang Crom, Nnamdi Elleh, Fatima El-Tayeb, Bartholomäus Grill, Ryszard Kapuscinski, Horst Köhler, Dambisia Moyo, Chika Okeke-Agulu, Britta Schmitz, Helmut Strizek, Ulf Vieke, Abdourahman Ali Waberi, Paul Zeleza, Joachim Zeller, and a conversation between Udo Kittelmann and Christoph Schlingensief.
