Consent vs Consent? (Zustimmung)

Consent vs Consent? (Zustimmung)
Wie heißen Sie?
Woher kommen Sie?
Wie alt sind Sie?
Having the ideas of inviting some neighbors in surrounding area where we live to be photographed was an inspiring experience. Our curiosity may not equal to acceptance. Until we started sharing some common or different living habit, we found a point of human touch and exchange. As an image based artist and photographer, I haven’t imagined that taking photos and getting consent by the “Refugee” from the war area such as Syrian and Afghanistan is a meaningful task for me. They are willing to be taken photos. It seems like that “The new comers in Germany need my photos showing their existence.” Finally, I got their consent to show their faces in the family photos standing and living around us. How about your “Consent”? In my project, I set a photo series and 15 family photos from the Refugee Camp in Hamburg, and installation of getting the “Consent Form (of acceptance)” to be filled by the public.
