13.06.2012 | ZEF: Movie presentation "White Charity – Blackness & whiteness on charity ad posters"

ZEF cordially invites you to this week’s Alternative Wednesday @ ZEF:

“White Charity – Blackness & whiteness on charity ad posters”

The movie will be shown in the presence of the film-maker Timo Kiesel. He will give an introduction and take part in the discussion after the film.

About the movie:
Embedded in the general discourse of Self and Other, xenophobia and racism, the discussion about billboard advertisements should clarify how the discourse of White charity organisations can be the vehicle of discriminating and restricting stereotypes. Following the question of what and who is not shown on the posters, we are investigating the topic of the White self-image of charity organisations. We will discuss their influence on the public perceptions of colonial and current power relations.
