AIOLOS OPERATION

2013, Berlin.

During the fall of 2012, about 80 refugees marched in protest from Würzburg to Berlin. For almost two years, they occupied and lived in tents in Oranienplatz Square, located in one of the most central districts of the city. The camp was a form of active manifestation against the current policies of the European Union with respect to the process of entry and residence of International refugees (Residenzplicht, among other laws). The motto of the camp, that no one should be illegal (kein mensch its illegal) marked the imagery of the city ever since. The project "Aiolos Operation" is the result of my visits to the camp and the dialogue exchanged with some refugees during 2013.
