The Helpers

2016 – 2018

Human rights and solidarity – Annette Hauschild travels to the borders of Europe to examine these European ideals in photographs. In situational portraits, the artist focuses on actors who practise these fundamental values in their concrete actions – from Christian and political activists to volunteer refugee workers in the ongoing migration flows into Turkey, Greece, France and Germany. Annette Hauschild creates a monument to them without heroising them.
