Laboratoire Déberlinisation


english only

Laboratoire Deberlinisation was 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
Deberlinisation 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 Deberlinisation has exhibited and presented throughout
Europe and 3 times at the Dakar Biennale, the 2008 edition of which
Mansour Ciss was awarded first prize.
