    Late Capitalism, Urbanisation, and Cultures of Economic "Survivalism" in the BBC’s Welcome to Lagos

    Der Autor dieses Beitrag analysiert die Darstellung von drei Slums in Lagos in der kontroversen BBC-Dokumentation "Welcome to Lagos", in der negative Folgen des globalisierten Kapitalismus auf die städtische Kultur der größten Stadt und des kommerziellen Zentrums Nigerias beleuchtet werden. In jüngster Zeit lag der Focus der Forschungen zur postkolonialen Urbanisierung nicht mehr vor allem auf ökonomischen Fragen, sondern auf den besonderen kulturellen Dimensionen des Lebens in postkolonialen Städten. Der Autor argumentiert, dass demgegenüber die Darstellungen postkolonialer Städte immer noch in erster Linie zeigen, in welcher Form kulturelle Reaktionen auf die brutalen Auswirkungen des Spätkapitalismus ökonomische Strategien reflektieren, die Mike Davis als "informal survivalism" bezeichnet hat.This article examines the depiction of three impoverished Lagosian slums in the controversial British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) documentary, Welcome to Lagos, which highlights the negative impacts of globalised capitalism on urban culture in Nigeria's commercial centre and biggest city. In recent times scholarship on postcolonial urbanisation has been marked by an important shift in focus from economic concerns to interest in the peculiar cultural dimensions of life in postcolonial cities. As this article argues, however, dominant depictions of postcolonial cities continue to highlight ways in which cultural responses to the harsh effects of late capitalism in such cities reflect economic strategies of what Mike Davis calls "informal survivalism.
