CROSSING BOUNDARIES OF DOUBT is a fragmentary narrative in nine chapters, in which authors from the Global South and North foster a space of agency through their contributions and collaborative exchange and exploration. This space of “narrative” can be used as an extra-institutional platform.

The artists probe their relations with one another through music, texts, poems, and images. They poetically and critically reflect on the past and the present of their societies along with the intertwining of these societies, on their own everyday life realities and the necessity of change, self-organization, and self-determination. It is a collection and a narrative as artistic space where the question of communality is negotiated.

The artistic undertaking was initiated in 2013 by the artist Astrid S. Klein, who also coordinates the project. It is immersed in an open process as a transnational and transcontinental dialogue between Cameroonian and German participants. As a “work in progress,” the project is presented in various formats above and beyond the website through cooperation with the project partners and other international artists.

A project by Astrid S. Klein in collaboration with: Susanne Weiß/Heidelberger Kunstverein, Germany, Em’kal Eyongakpa /Artspace Khaliland, Cameroon and SadraK/Collective Hip-Hop Développé, Douala, Cameroon.
