The project aus aktuellem Anlass is a photographical exploration of places, that were repeatedly shown by the media during the peak of the refugee crisis in the summer of 2015.
The sense of immediate impact and urgency of events is strongly connected to agitating pictures. After a shift from public spaces (streets, train stations, courtyards) into more private and bureaucratic places (offices, temporary accommodations), the crisis suddenly seems solved or even non-existent.
The goal of this project is to underline the ongoing need for help and support, even though the needed assistance changed and is not as visible as before. The outcome is a newspaper, comparing the places in the summer of 2015 and today.
