26th February 1884. Scenes of joy at the Radziwill Palace in Berlin to celebrate the end of negotiations at the Berlin Conference on Africa, which had lasted for four months. During these four months, the leading diplomats of the Western world had determined the future of Africa, dividing it up into areas of influence and drawing borders at random. Yet not a single African had been asked for their opinion! “THE DIVISION OF AFRICA – BERLIN 1884” makes use of previously unexplored archive material and the insights of historians specialised in the colonial question to shed new light on this period of history at the end of the 19th century that would seal the fate of an entire continent for many years to come.
