Trojan Horses
Project info

The photographs were shot during the tumults between protesters and the German Federal Police at the opening of the new European Central Bank building on March 18th 2015. In elaborate photomontages, characteristic themes were, in contrast to stereotypical reporting, taken out of their context. Viewpoint and the motivations of the involved parties in the moment of confrontation blur - who is being threatened and on whose side am I? The new concentration of the events gives us the opportunity to free ourselves from learned paradigms and to encounter ourselves in a open discussion. The series "Trojan Horses" is meant to encourage people to allow themselves to consciously pause for a moment and to rethink their position.
