Lotte Arndt

Lotte Arndt (Germany) lives and works in Paris and Berlin. Arndt is a researcher, writer, and journalist. She is a PhD student at Humboldt University of Berlin and Paris Diderot University, researching African cultural magazines in Paris. She writes about literature, art and society in academic and journalistic contexts. Her main interest lies in the intersections of esthetics and politics. A member of the Frankfurt Research Center for Postcolonial Studies, she collaborated with Bétonsalon (Paris) on a series of monthly conferences Under the free sky of history in 2011. Arndt works within multiple postcolonial conflicts, notably a project with the Berlin-based group Artefakte//anti-humboldt on restitution as a possible strategy for the contestation of colonial archives and of their contemporary repercussions, which leads her to question the collections of ethnographic museums.
