WOHNRAUM FÜR ALLE? – Squat Activism in Germany
This on-going photo documentary follows a political activists group in Freiburg, Germany, called Die WG – Wohnraum Gestalten (Create Living Space). The group finds empty houses and apartments listed on political party websites, such as Leerstandsliste, and occupies them for a short period of time as a protest form. The squat action is intended to attract attention to the media on the rising number of empty houses in Freiburg, and to put pressure on local political parties to finding a solution for the rising costs of rent and housing in the city.
The project intends to expand on the topic of radical leftist political movements in Germany, and explore the dynamics of their social and environmental activism.
