Prof. Dr. Walter D. Mignolo visits the Berlin Global Village

We had the honor of welcoming Prof. Dr. Walter D. Mignolo to Berlin Global Village yesterday! He received a personal tour of the house and showed particular interest in the Decolonial Memorial that is currently being built in front of our building. He is one of THE leading thinkers in decolonial theory and wanted to learn more about the impact the memorial aims to have on various communities.

 

Prof. Mignolo expressed his respect and appreciation for the 50 organizations based here and engaged in an exciting discussion about the causes of global injustice. Akinola Famson emphasized: "We cannot deconstruct colonialism if people do not know what colonialism is." A discourse that is to be continued with the Decolonial Memorial.
