Schlauraffenland

Rosarno - Italy/Weimar - Germany, 2020 - ongoing  

Schlauraffenland is that imaginary castle that we construct to hold and protect our fragile identity. Sometimes we call it nation, sometimes culture. 

Schlauraffenland is the dream of a better place where to live and settle that makes us pack our stuff and move to an uncertain abroad. Sometimes we are expats, sometimes we are migrants.
