Cooperation with Freiburg’s Augustinermuseum

The historical and contemporary influences of colonialism on Freiburg: this is the theme of the new exhibition that just opened at the Freiburg Augustiner Museum and that is, according to the museum director, the first of its kind in Germany. Last school year, 8 of our students met weekly for their CAS service to examine what German colonialism meant for the city and its inhabitants in the late 19th and early 20th century as well as to explore what the Global North’s persistent dominance of the Global South means politically, economically, ecologically etc. for us today. “The ultimate goal”, so Malcolm MacLaren, the CAS leader and teacher, “was for students to develop and share their own visions of a decolonized world”.
The students were concerned with, for example, ‘Garbage export: the e-waste dump at Agbogbloshie, Ghana’, ‘The last stage of imperialism: neo-colonial military and political intervention’, and ‘Balanced partnership or neo-exploitation? Chinese actions in Africa’. Their stories about Freiburg’s post-colonial entanglements are a part of the exhibition’s display and catalogue and were described by its curator as “really helpful” for the exhibition.
