Photography Project now in course of production. 2011, Berlin, Germany.
The project consists of a photographic series with the aim of rethink the philosophy beyond the European colonial process in Africa that took place at the beginning of last century, particularly considering the participation of Germany.
I work on images of symbolic and representative buildings of the imperial philosophy along with documentary pictures of the colonial times. Textf ragments of speeches made in the German Colonial Society (Deutschen Kolonialgesellschaft) among others by Konrad Adenauer (who would afterwards be Bundeskanzler) had been added as a counterpoint.
       "Wir müssen für unser Volk mehr Raum haben". (We must have more space for our people)
      "Im Reiche selbst ist zu wenig Raum". (In the Kingdom itself ist not enough space")
