Wolfgang Jaenicke has been dealing in art objects from Africa for over 25 years. He tells how, as a boy, he rummaged in Harry's Harbour Bazaar and was fascinated by the artifacts from the colonial era in his parents' house. His art studies failed in the chaos of the 1968. So he travelled to Africa not as an academic, but as someone who likes to mingle. Now he is back and reports on the current situation, which is marked by war and the retreat of the Europeans. He resists having his work cast in the crooked light of a mendacious discussion that seeks to reinterpret his affection for the people and their culture as an act of exploitation that demands reparations.
