Another project by Marissa Lôbo is the video performance and lecture Safer sex? Fuck Europe, here I am to stay, Super puta Praderstern (2013). As Marissa Lôbo states, the work exposes colonial desire and violence, otherness, sexuality, racialized bodies, contra aesthetics, migrant-precarious bodies, migrant identity, sex work, society’s double morals, the regime of Western body politics, and white supremacy.
Another key project/position in the Austrian context is the Research Group on Black Austrian History and Presence / Pamoja with representatives Araba Evelyn Johnston-Arthur, Belinda Kazeem, and Njideka Stephanie Iroh, among others. The pan-African movement in Austria called Pamoja brought together young Africans in Austria to fight for their rights and against racism in Europe. The starting point of the group is the violent historical presences of (neo)colonial representations in Austria. The group works with gendered images, which according to Araba Evelyn Johnston-Arthur and in reference to Stuart Hall, completely repress any existence of “homemade” (neo) colonial imagery in Germany and Austria.*12 *(12)
The Research Group on Black Austrian History and Presence connects its work to black, migrant, feminist, postcolonial theorists in the German-speaking countries such as Fatima El- Tayeb, Maisha Maureen Eggers, May Ayim, Nicola Lauré al-Samarai, Encarnación Gutiérrez Rodríguez, Grada Kilomba,*13 *(13) and Audre Lorde.*14 *(14) The group aims at recovering suppressed knowledge about Black Austrian history, creating a new space and thereby situating Black people in this country differently; namely, from a Black perspective that positions itself beyond voyeuristic depictions of the “exotic other.”
