“The Africa of the great explorers, the immense territory of hunting and adventure that entire generations of young people loved without knowing it, is gone forever. To that age-old Africa, overwhelmed and destroyed with the tremendous speed of progress, we have said goodbye. The devastation, the havoc, the massacres we have witnessed, belong to a new Africa, to that Africa which, even if it emerges from its ruins more modern, more rational, more functional, more aware, will be unrecognisable.”
Sin Safari Rides is a book that brings together essay extracts and authentic visual material on the subject of colonialism and post-colonialism, focusing specifically on the African experience. Here, the digital postcard collection Kolonialismus und Afrikanische Diaspora auf Bildpostkarten attempts to open a dialogue with the photographic re-editing of the Mondo Movie Africa Addio, one of the rarest surviving testimonies of what were the darkest years of post-colonial Africa.
