it’s been a long time since we have launched our call for contributions. In the meantime, a lot of things have happened - many people supported the exhibition “Sichtwechsel” and spread the word, many challenges have been overcome to make a dream come true. Even a former German president wrote an editorial in order to raise awareness of the cause and to show Germans that the African continent has a lot more to offer than stories of war and conflicts or images of safaris.
At the opening of the exhibition in September 13, project coordinator Leslie Peters emphasized that this project would have never been possible without your support, the contributors. You were the beginning of this success story. You helped us to tell another story about Africa. Without you, there would have been no “Sichtwechsel” (change of view), but only the same, single story. Thank you for helping Germans to understand that there is more!
With the photos of the vernissage we hope to give you an impression of the exhibition.
