Prosa der Verhältnisse #12 - AFROTOPIA

»Dark continent« or »the world's raw materials warehouse«, we still think about Africa in stereotypes. And the scale on which we measure its status is still the West's model of development – even though that's proven to be destructive. In his revolutionary manifesto Afrotopia, Felwine Sarr demands a real decolonisation of Africa.
Deniz Utlu and the Senegalse author and economics scholar discuss his sobering analysis, which also contains an encouraging utopia.
