AMO COLLECTIVE berlin
The Amo Collective is a group of students, artists, scholars and members of civil society based at the Institut für Europäische Ethnologie, part of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The collective emerged through the anti-racist and decolonial struggles surrounding the renaming of our street after Afro-German Enlightenment philosopher and anti-racist pioneer of the early 18th century: Anton Wilhelm Amo.

In preparation for the Decolonial Flânerie 2023, we organized a public assembly within the confines of the future Amo Salon space. The workshop delved into the interwoven histories of the neighborhood, encompassing the narratives of Jewish heritage, colonial past, vestiges of the GDR era, and the ongoing anti-racist struggles. The primary objective was to spark public debate and formulate the conceptual framework for the upcoming Flânerie.
