After Year Zero
Geographies of CollaborationBook - 2015
Published in conjunction with an exhibition that has traveled to the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw from Berlin's Haus der Kulturen der Welt, this volume takes as its starting point the realignment of global ties after Europe year zero and focuses on the worldwide phenomenon of decolonization. Investigating magazines, journals, and newspapers, the diverse essays in 'After Year Zero' shine a spotlight on collaboration, not confrontation, in the many publications launched at various times and in different places within the African continent or the African diaspora. As the volume contributors show, the format of these periodicals provided a means for temporary intervention against hegemonic voices and made possible the necessary task of creating a new language to talk about art, life, and politics. In addition to text-based essays, 'After Year Zero' also includes visual essays designed like collages of documents, quotes, and images. With its unique international and interdisciplinary approach, 'After Year Zero' is an innovative study of postwar narrative possibilities and a powerful reflection on the processes by which the universal can be generated.
