Death/Mbembe/Herb: Mbembe's analysis of the tyranny of representation (...) penetrates behind the "noise of the tam-tam" (Mbembe 2016(1), 266) into the sphere of extinction and forgetting. There he searches for the reasons why Africa is so twinned with violence and death that the violence of death has become the "normal state of things" (248).
In the entourage of Frantz Fanon, Mbembe once again inspected the "terrifying places" (261) of the colony. >Language/Mbembe.
Brocker I 923
Postcolony: The postcolony appears as an "epoch of raw life" (282), as a place of indistinguishability of life and death. The colonial relationship between death, body and flesh, which Mbembe describes in such detail, remains intact in the postcolony. The new rulers also show their "carnivorous face"(287).
