Conceived by Julia Grosse and Yvette Mutumba, C& Center of Unfinished Business is a participative reading room that offers visitors an extraordinary, sometimes disconcerting selection of books that are linked to the topic of colonialism in various ways – from a history book on German colonies to a fashion book on the Sappeurs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo all the way to an analysis of capital markets in the 21st century. It is a walk-in bookcase structure that can be used from different perspectives.
From the books that are available, some were provided by the association Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V. in Berlin-Wedding: EOTO eV is a community-based education and empowerment project in Berlin. Founded in 2012, the association opened its doors in March 2014 as a neighborhood library and has been a place of learning and meeting ever since. EOTO eV works together with other organizations for the interests of black, African and Afro-diasporic people in Germany and Europe.
The “Center of Unfinished Business” is a long-term project traveling to and intervening in international museums, institutions and galleries.
