Traces of colonialism in the palaces in Berlin and Brandenburg are evident. This guidebook presents 24 places, biographies and works of art with colonial references. Notes on the art and cultural-historical context are complemented by a perspective that focuses on aspects of colonial history, problems of existing narratives or information hitherto ignored.
When visiting the palaces and parks, this guidebook enables all those interested in colonial contexts to discover stories previously untold. But it also invites all other visitors to broaden the thematic context of their tour.

The publication does not claim to be exhaustive, it is rather a step as part of an ongoing, controversial debate.
