Das Kongo Tribunal
Making use of an experimental setup, Milo Rau shows what neither the Congolese government nor the International Criminal Court have achieved. In Bukavu, where conflicts of interest between multinational companies and the local population have escalated, Rau arranges a civilian tribunal so that opposing parties can meet – bringing together forcibly displaced farmers, managers, human rights lawyers, and government representatives. Ethnic differences and the fight for raw materials have long overlapped here.
The event is part of the Colonial Repercussions/Koloniales Erbe series.
