cafém – getting to know feminism #6

The cafém in February will deal with Black Feminism, Black women in Germany and the book Daima, which was publishes last year.

Daima: On Witnesses, Images and Visions.
A Book Presentation

“without a vision, every social change feels like death.”
Audre Lorde

In global contexts, Black women have historically been rendered invisible both within (white dominated) feminist movements and within (male dominated) Black power movements. In Germany, this situation has been no different and cultural representations in this country continue to be dominated by the ideals of „white“ and „male.“ Just the same, Black women in Germany have continuously organised and represented themselves – the photobook „Daima“ is simply one further contribution to a long tradition of cultural productions and creative work by Black women in Germany.

In this interactive event, mother, author, editor and activist Sharon Dodua Otoo will talk about her motivation for creating the English language book series „Witnessed“ with a special focus on the latest publication „Daima. Images of Women of Colour in Germany“ by Nzitu Mawakha.

Presentation in English & German. All welcome.

Also we will have well known things like: book corners, reading circle, children play area, discussions, games, brunch (pls bring some food),..
