Rethinking images of global injustice

When depicting global inequality caused by colonization and exploitation, discriminatory images are mostly used in development publicity, current depictions of flight and migration, and fundraising to reach potential donors. Black people and people of color are predominantly misused as project surfaces for racist fantasies, whereas white people are portrayed as rescuing helpers. The reduced representation of the relationship between the Global North and Global South, which is exclusively from the perspective of the North, is characterized by the “good white helper” and the “needy” PoC. At the same time, exploitative relationships and structural causes of poverty and wealth remain unmentioned and consequently do not find their way into development education policy. In order not to remain trapped in criticism, we want to try out other non-discriminatory representations in a protected setting in the workshop. Together, new, non-discriminatory images are conceived, discussed and produced. The creative workshop is exclusively for Black people and People of Color.

The workshop will take place on 25. and June 26 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the rooms of the Migration Council Berlin (Oranienstr. 34, 10999 Berlin) and is organized by ISD e.V. and glokal e.V..
