Catalogus: Black Atlantic

The book Black Atlantic (2004) is the first ever compilation of texts and visual media of various genres and disciplines published in German-speaking countries to examine the idea of the Black Atlantic. In addition to original essays by the curators (Paul Gilroy, Tina Campt and Fatima El-Tayeb) and interviews with the artists (Isaac Julien, Keith Piper, Lisl Ponger, Tim Sharp, Jean-Paul Bourelly and Ismael Ivo), it contains academic and poetic texts by internationally known thinkers and poets who are concerned with Black history and histories in Europe and across the globe.
