ITI Annual Conference 2019 in Cologne

The ITI Annual Conference will take place on 22 June 2019 in Cologne, as part of the africologne festival.

The political relations between Europe and Africa are still determined by post-colonial structures. The question of power has been discussed increasingly in the last years, but the North-South gradient is still causing differential in the distribution of power and resources and by this reiterating the question of equal opportunities. What conditions are needed for cooperation to succeed on an equal basis? What kind of space will be given to new aesthetics and narratives and who is creating them? Where are the new perspectives of artistic cooperation?

Experiences and approaches will be discussed at this year's africologneDIALOGFORUM.

The discussion between Achille Mbembe (Historian, Political Scientist and in June this year Albertus Magnus Professor at the University of Cologne) and Stefan Schmidtke (Programme Director of the ITI Festival Theater der Welt in Düsseldorf 2020) opens the conference.

Further podiums will hold following discussants, among others: Etienne Minoungou, patron of the festival and represented in the production "Traces" at the festival; Jan-Christoph Gockel, present at the festival with his production "Die Revolution frisst ihre Kinder!"; Emeka Okereke, whose installation "A volatile negotiation between the past and the present" shows the trans-African Road Trip 2018 of his Invisible Borders collective; Rafaële Giovanola from Cocoon Dance, who will be present at the festival with "Signifying Ghosts"; Ahilan Ratnamohan, who will present the performance "Reverse Colonialism!" ... a unique opportunity both to get to know the works of internationally producing artists and directors and to engage in discussions.

An opportunity for the exchange of experiences, networking and new projects - and for reflection on the structures of international project work.
