This work shows conceptual portraits of mothers and their babies. All mothers are German citizens each with an individual history of migration. Scientists and politicians define national identities with abstract concepts such as Majority Society, Multiculturalism, Interculturalism, Transculturalism. This work confronts abstract and ambiguous terminologies with real-life examples. Eventually every viewer has to decide how and with what relevance he or she wants to answer the question “Who and what is German, after all?”.
Who can participate?

Until when and with what purpose will this work be finalised?
