Laboratoire Déberlinisation


Laboratoire Déberlinisation founded in Berlin in 2001 by Mansour Ciss Kanakassy with Baruch Gottlieb and Christian Hanussek to problematize the borders drawn up in Berlin in 1884-1885 (Kongokonference) and the ramifications of these which extend to today. Laboratoire Déberlinisation produces through what Leopold Sédar Senghor called "métissage culturel et biologique" physical real-world manifestations of utopian visions of an Africa prosperous, at peace, with sovereignty over its resources and its future. Laboratoire Déberlinisation has exhibited and presented throughout Europe and 3 times at the Dakar Biennale, the 2008 edition of which Mansour Ciss was awarded first prize.
