Freiburg and Colonialism: Yesterday? Today!

25 June 2022 to 11 June 2023

What does Freiburg, and what do we, have to do with German colonialism? We are still profiting economically, politically and culturally from the structures of oppression and exploitation that were created pre-1919. At that time people from all social classes believed in racial
ideology. A feeling of intellectual and cultural superiority over others, particularly non-Europeans, was widespread. And today? What prejudices and behavioural patterns have been passed down through the generations – either consciously or unconsciously? How are they expressed in our everyday lives? The exhibition reappraises Freiburg’s colonial interrelationships and encourages us to question our own actions.


Typical!? Freiburg and the region in photos by Willy Pragher

23 July to 16 October 2022

Augustinermuseum – Haus der Graphischen Sammlung

On Münsterplatz you can buy hot sausages for 70 pfennigs, students protest on Kaiser-Joseph-Straße, a flock of sheep grazes in front of the town hall and the Schauinsland becomes a car race track. Willy Pragher's black-and-white and early colour photographs tell of life in the post-war period up to the 1980s. The Berlin-born press photographer made Freiburg his adopted home. His pictures of the city and the region are historically informative and thoroughly entertaining.
