With this performance, developed by the artist Eddy Ekete for the Prolog Station #10 Last Minute!, the responsibility of former and present world powers is disclosed – be it the colonial powers of yesterday or today's multinational corporations, who still loot and plunder the resources of the African continent without regard to humankind and nature.

The flags of today’s European powers are joined by flags of the former German colonies and flags depicting African objects as well as maps and colonial-era photographs from the collections of the Museum of Ethnology Dresden and the Grassi Museum of Ethnology in Leipzig. The artist aims to illustrate the direct and indirect entanglement of the African collections of objects, which are now preserved in European museums, with the colonial past.
