It’s time for us
to become visible

We want to present statelessness in a modern and authentic way. Together with Florian Schwarz and 15 stateless people in seven different European countries, we were able to create our first exhibition project.

A photography project illuminating statelessness

The goal of “IMAGINE.” is to shine a light on those affected by statelessness and portray their stories in photographic portraits and writing. You are stateless and want to become part of the project? You are interested in bringing the exhibition to your city? Contact us!

The artistic concept
and exhibition

Statelessness portrayed at a state border

The first exhibition took place in Constance. As a city of cross-border and transnational discourse between Germany, Switzerland and Austria, Constance seems like the perfect place for it. Read more about our opening event here:

Installations in galleries & public spaces

The exhibition will be presented partly in a gallery, partly in public spaces such as an open air installation. The different characteristics of the locations will speak to a broader audience and add an additional level of meaning.

“I have coffee with the people I want to photograph, we go for a walk. I meet them in their homes, have a chat with them, listen to their stories. That way, I think, authentic and respectful portraits can happen.”
