On 12 June 2021, twelve musicians perform a composition written especially for the event throughout the day in front of the monument to raise awareness of German colonial history.
Otto von Bismarck, the first German Chancellor commemorated by this statue, is also regarded as the founder of German colonialism. He organized the 1884 West Africa Conference in Berlin, where the European colonial powers divided up Africa.
The art action wants to confront the monument with its history and its context and to raise awareness for the historical context of the monument.
