Dierk Schmidt : The Division of the Earth: Tableaux on the Legal Synopsis of the Berlin Africa Conference Hardback
In 1884, the governments of western Europe and the USA met in Berlin to prepare the division of the entire African continent through an international act of law.
Dierk Schmidt's recuperation and visual elaboration of the documents attending this act is based on years of research, and is compiled in this volume--a clear-eyed response to the clear-eyed brutality of this decisive occasion.
