DJ RAPH on Deutschlandfunk Kultur

Great interview and feature about DJ Raph and Sacred Groves on German national radio Deutschlandfunk Kultur. (german only):
„…Oft scheint es, als habe das Archiv den DJ gefunden – mindestens so sehr wie der DJ das Archiv. „Sacred Groves“ ist auch ein Statement gegen die Abgeschmacktheit der Afrika-Schablonen.- „Ich mag die Bezeichnung traditionell nicht, weil sie wie eine touristische Kategorie klingt“, sagt er. Insofern hat DJ Raph nicht nur ein künstlerisches Meisterstück, sondern auch einen hochinteressanten Beitrag zur politischen Debatte um den kolonialen Charakter der Sammlungen abgeliefert.“
