The C& Center of Unfinished Business is a reading room offering visitors an extraordinary, sometimes disconcerting selection of books that are linked to the topic of colonialism in various ways – from German colonies to Congolese fashion to capital markets of 21st century.

The Center has been traveling during the past three years and connected in various ways with institutions such as ifa (Institute for Foreign Relations), the Academy of Arts, Transmediale in Berlin; documenta 14’s Peppermint, Kassel or school, Vienna. The center will travel to further stops in the coming months. Watch this space for more info!
