German theatres still have almost exclusively white ensembles and Afro-German visual artists continue to struggle for recognition free of labels like "African" or "migrant" - even in 2012. "The Little Book of Big Visions: How to be an Artist and Revolutionize the World," edited by Sandrine Micossé-Aikins and Sharon Dodua Otoo, discusses the current situation of Black artists in Germany and presents their visions for equality in text and image form. This results in an innovative work engaging in a discourse reaching far beyond concepts of "integration" or "migration" - or even "race" or "equality" themselves. This anthology is aimed primarily at Black cultural producers living and working in Germany, as well as those who reside in English-speaking contexts throughout the diaspora. However, this book is also aimed at everyone who has an interest in revolutionizing the contemporary art scene in Germany and ensuring that it finally begins to be truly reflective of its actual and future populations.
