As Germany is getting confronted with people of different ethnics and cultural background due to the refugees issue, I started wondering why is it that people are so afraid of faces that look different from what they are used to. I observed my own reaction when traveling to a country with different ethnic and cultural background. The first impression was to see the people as a population of anonymous identities, making me also feel anonymous and unconnected to the people. As I got more and more in touch with the people among me, I started to discover the new, beautiful diverse and interesting characters around me. More than that, I also met a whole bunch of new identities within myself. I decided to share this positive experience with a social media art project:
The "Bagabonds"-Project resembles the fun to discover new identities within yourself due to this mind broadening process of meeting new cultures, new people, new identities.
