InterKontinental e.V. organised the first edition of the African Book Festival titled “Writing in Migration” in 2018, the biggest literature festival for African literature in Germany.
The project curated by the Nigerian-German author Olumide Popoola was a great success, hosting more than 1000 visitors and 40 guest authors, and set new standards in terms of representation of African literature in Germany.
Since then, InterKontinental e.V. has organised the African Book festival in Berlin annually. Information about the current festival can be found on this website.
