Heimat-Asyl

Like two weeks ago, I published a post titled “Mannheim Faces” that was dedicated to a Turkish politician whose face is sprayed widely within the city centre of Mannheim. In a city like Mannheim (or simply replace Mannheim with your home city), there are other, real faces. Faces of people you see and don’t see at the same time, or who you don’t see at all.

This August, photographer Luigi Toscano displays 43 black-and-white portraits of people seeking for asylum in Germany and currently living in Mannheim on the windows of the “Alte Feuerwache”. Do we know their faces? Or their stories? And do we want to know?
