Clementine Ewokolo Burnley in interview with Nine Yamamoto-Masson

„In this hour, Clementine speaks of her approach as a writer moving between fiction and non-fiction; the history and present-day legacy of (German) colonialism in Africa and specifically in Cameroon; the violence of white philosophy as a bastion of white supremacy and coloniality; the continued violence of museums, specifically the museum in Berlin that proudly house and exhibit half a million looted cultural artefacts from regions outside Europe; the problem with Western „development aid“ and why this system is fundamentally broken, while Western corporations continue maximise their capital, evade taxes and further weaken local economies – and much more. It’s an hour packed with expansive, nuanced knowledge, sharp analysis&inspiring warmth“ –  Nine Yamamoto-Masson
