Festival-Motiv, © Arne Thaysen

Colonialism is not limited to a historical time or a distant space; it constitutes the very foundation of our thoughts and actions here and now. Decolonisation in art, science and society does not only shatter the cornerstones of Europe, it means the downfall of our Western modernity. Yet Europe’s crisis offers the chance to become something other than who we are today.

In lectures, performances and installations, After Europe brings together international artists and thinkers who disrupt the colonial framework of art and science. They abandon the universalism of Western culture and celebrate a world in which privileged worldviews no longer prevail.
