From the publisher:
 
Über(w)unden: Art in Troubled Times is a wide-ranging and illustration-rich investigation into how writers, visual artists, theatre practitioners, musicians, filmmakers, choreographers and photographers from various sub-Saharan countries, including Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan and Zimbabwe, as well as their counterparts in Germany, have creatively engaged with social traumas. How does social trauma impact on the making of works by artists? What role do artists play during times of crisis and social change?...This volume presents a range of responses that intellectually and imaginatively engage these pressing issues. Although largely historical in nature, the line of enquiry in this book is particularly relevant to the turbulent times of the present.”
 
Edited by Lien Heidenreich-Seleme and Sean O'Toole, Über(w)unden: Art in Troubled Times includes essays and artworks from Véronique Tadjo, Antjie Krog, Zanele Muholi, Stacy Hardy, Théogéne Niwenshuti, Jens Dietrich, Kudzanai Chiurai, Mpumelelo Paul Grootboom, Marcel van Heerden, the Centre for Historical Reenactments, Diane Awerbuck, Djo Tunda Wa Munga, Rumbi Katedza, Warren Nebe, Sello Pesa, Marcel Odenbach, Kathleen MacQueen, Jo Ratcliffe, Sam Hopkins, Vincenzo Cavallo, Sean O’Toole, Aboudia, Sammy Baloji, William Kentridge, Dierk Schmidt, Malte Jaguttis, Joäo Orecchia, and Hans Narva.
