Decolonize the city! 2017 sees itself as a necessary intervention in the German-speaking debate on the ‘European city’. The authors call for urban decolonization and ask from a racist-critical and solidary perspective for the everyday life and struggles of post-colonial migrants and people of color in the city.
The focus is on the perspectives of those who are produced and read as racialized, gendered and sexualized “others” – and who understand themselves or not. These include political practices of localization, self-designation in the German / transnational context or the relationship between the city and the location of racialized people and communities.
Last but not least, this anthology aims to contribute to a decolonizing production of knowledge and to the archive of language in antiracist struggles.
