SENEGAMBIA BLEIBT is a collaborative video focused on the connections between Brazilian and West African cultures in Europe. Senegambia is a West African restaurant located on Reichenberger Straße (the same street as Gallery Mario Kreuzberg), where a lot of different African communities meet to eat food from their home countries. Pa Modou Jah, the owner of the restaurant, talks about his migration history to Germany which happened over thirty years ago, the gentrification affecting Kreuzberg today, and the role of the manioc in connecting South America, Africa and Europe. Departing from the manioc dishes, the video also connects the gallery space to the local neighbourhood.
