InterKontinental e.V. is a state approved non-profit and politically independent association based in Berlin since 2018. The association’s goal is to promote literature from Africa as well as writers from African countries in Germany.
We design innovative concepts and facilitate literary events such as the African Book Festival, but also book launches, conversation series, readings, theatre and spoken word performances. InterKontinental e.V. is platform for African perspectives. Our work is based on an equal collaboration and exchange between Germany and the countries of the African continent and its diaspora. To ensure that, all our projects are curated by our African partners.
Through books and stories, we aim at creating a dialogue between the continents and its people in order to contribute to work against prejudices, stereotypes, inequalities, neo-colonial structures and ultimately racism and discrimination.
