Mission and Colonialism


Despite the decolonization in the 19th and 20th century, the aftereffects of colonialism can still be felt today: On the one hand, economic and political dependencies define international politics. On the other hand, colonial images and racist ideas are still present all over the world today. In Switzerland in particular, there is still little awareness of colonial issues. Racism is seen as something foreign and is rarely reflected on. Colonial images have to be exposed and their racist impact made visible. Only once we understand how the view of the “foreign other” still works today, and that white people are privileged, can the Eurocentric perception be broken and decolonization begin. Where do you still see colonial structures today?
